2016 in Summary

In the late part of the year, I haven’t been blogging as much due to distractions relating to preparing a house to sell, then actually selling it, buying another, and preparing to move a mountain of stuff (and what remains after months of purging, cleaning and culling is still a mountain). In just a few days we’ll be moved into our new place in North Portland, after more than a decade spent in outer SE, and it will be a very good thing.

Here is a summary of my 2016 publications:


My debut collection The Lure of Devouring Light was published by Word Horde.


My novella An Ideal Retreat was published by Dim Shores.


My debut novel Hieroglyphs of Blood and Bone was accepted for publication by JournalStone, coming in February 2017.




“The Smoke Lodge” in Autumn Cthulhu, edited by Mike Davis, published by Lovecraft eZine Press

Autumn Cthulhu cover

“The Carnival Arrives in Darkness” in Nightscript 2, edited by CM Muller


“The Human Alchemy” in Eternal Frankenstein, edited by Ross E. Lockhart (Word Horde)


“Endure Within a Dying Frame” in Lovecraft eZine #38


“The Insomniac Who Slept Forever” in The Madness of Dr. Caligari, edited by Joseph S. Pulver Sr. (Fedogan & Bremer)

“Dreaming Awake in the Tree of the World”

“Far From Streets” (novella, first appeared as Dunhams Manor Press chapbook)

That’s quite a lot for one year! I look forward to returning to productivity and focus as soon as we finish moving.
