BUY - A WRITER’S BOOKSHOP
I occasionally write things. You occasionally read things. We’re both in the right place.
Here you can buy my books, find links to other peoples’ publications in which my stories appear, and occasionally you’ll find a one-off oddball at the bottom of the page. Shelf space is always at a premium here; my loss is potentially your gain.
It could only be easier if I came and read to you. And that would be far more expensive.
SHADY ACRES AND DARKER PLACES
I read Poe early in life; I cut my teeth on anthology shows like THE TWILIGHT ZONE, which introduced me to the likes of Charles Beaumont and Richard Matheson; then I discovered Ray Bradbury and Robert Bloch; and not long after, I stumbled into Harlan Ellison’s work. They all made me want to tell stories. If their names are at all familiar, then you have a sense of what you’ll find in the tales collected in SHADY ACRES AND DARKER PLACES, which brings together stories from various magazine, anthology, and online appearances over the past decade.
The trade paperback and e-book editions contain 21 tales, plus copious story notes for the ‘behind the scenes’ people. (Trade paperback orders fulfilled by Lulu.com; e-book links provided below.)
The hardcover (the true first edition) includes the same 21 tales and notes, plus a bonus section with five additional pieces ranging from a high school publication to my first professional sale. This edition is signed and numbered, limited to 50 copies, and will not be reprinted. (Orders fulfilled by Midnight-To-Three Publishing.)

NEW AND RECENT WORK APPEARING ELSEWHERE
I receive nothing from the purchase of the items below (I got paid upon publication) except the satisfaction of pointing you towards other publications and writers who merit your attention. Their editors like my stuff, YOU like my stuff - see how much you already have in common?
Pulp Modern: Volume Two, Issue Three
Contains my crime story “The Great Unknown” Print and Kindle.
Tales of the Unanticipated, October 2018
Contains my horror story “The Floor Is Lava”
THE CURRENT ODDBALL (A ROTATING OFFERING)
MACHINE OF DEATH (LIMITED EDITION HARDCOVER)
I have a single surplus copy of the limited HARDCOVER printing of the indie-sensation anthology MACHINE OF DEATH. Released in 2011, this was a one-time printing of 300 numbered copies that sold out upon release. Issued as a package with a patch and other ephemera, I only have the book and the errata label issued by the publisher (laid in inside the back cover; not affixed.) Purchased used. The book has some surface rubbing/staining from the previous owner’s fingers (glossy black is a bad cover idea in a greasy world) as well as a light gouge to the back cover, some edge bumps, and a pen mark to the side of the page block (not a remainder mark, as it was never sold in stores.)
At the moment, there’s ONE copy on the secondary market, signed by all three editors. It’s in New Zealand, and the asking price is US $279.12, so this is a) almost impossible to find now and b) a bargain. Contains my story “Friendly Fire” (still uncollected.) Unsigned, but I will deface it by my story if you’re interested. Or not. Some people simply aren’t “writing in books” people…
