First of all, I am delighted to say that my story “The Old Roads” is up at the Burrow Press website, where you can read it for free. It’s the start of their Month of Horrors, which will bring you a new horror story every Tuesday for the rest of the month, so be sure to check back for the rest of the fiction that editor Teege Braune has lined up for you. Speaking of Teege, he is a wonderfully insightful editor and was a joy to work with.
Now, onto other stories!
“The Seventh Wave,” which was originally published in Paul Finch’s Terror Tales of the Ocean, has been reprinted in Undertow Press’s Year’s Best Weird Fiction vol. 3 and it’s available now in hardback or softcover from Amazon or from Undertow Press themselves. The guest editor this time around was Simon Strantzas.
Also, just a reminder that the anthologies Something Remains, a tribute to/collaboration with Joel Lane published by Alchemy Press, launched at Fantasycon (which was brilliant! amazing! Best FCon since Brighton 2012!) as did Newcon Press’s Ten Tall Tales, and both are also available now.

I read your story, Lynda, and I must say, I never saw the ending coming. Very original, the way her grandmother traded with the forces of the Dark to leave her descendants alone. I see you have a bit of the fantasy aspect in you. How long have you been writing horror?
I’ll be back to visit your site in the future.
Author of epic fantasy fiction,
Thank you for the kind words, Alex, and clearly, I am terrible at answering blog comments (where exactly DID October get to??). I’ve been writing horror all my life–and persuading people to publish it for about 17 years. Thanks for taking the time to stop by, read the story, and leave a note!
