The Madness of Dr. Caligari is Here

The Madness of Dr. Caligari is here! This tribute to the classic work of German Expressionist cinema The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari was edited by Joseph S. Pulver Sr. and features stories by many of the best and most interesting writers working in the genres of Horror and the Weird. It was released just before the holidays and seems to have been slightly overlooked, though I expect most of the people interested in this sort of thing will certainly find their way to a book like this, even if not on day one.

Not only do I love these selections, but it’s great to see small/indie presses represented in the WSJ! I have stories in two of these books (“The Human Alchemy” in Eternal Frankenstein and “The Insomniac Who Slept Forever” in The Madness of Dr. Caligari), and plan to read the rest.

Overview of Recent and Coming, Oct 2016

On Facebook, John Deathginger Goodrich asked me what I had coming next, and I typed out a quick list of what’s just out and what’s coming soon… may be of use as a summary of the current state of things:

So much stuff just out, or coming soon! Eternal Frankenstein is out now (has my novelette “The Human Alchemy”), Nightscript Vol. 2 is just out (leads off with my story “The Carnival Arrives in Darkness”), new Lovecraft eZine issue includes my story “Endure Within a Dying Frame” and next month my novella An Ideal Retreat will be out from Dim Shores. Oh, and The Madness of Dr. Caligari is out this month or next, and includes my story “The Insomniac Who Slept Forever”

I’m terribly pleased to find myself in the midst of such an amazing roster of talent. The subject matter is very promising, I trust the taste of Joe Pulver, and Fedogan & Bremer always creates such beautiful books, so I’m confident this will be one of the important anthologies of the year.
