Just added: the DRM-free audio book edition of my contemporary occult short story, "Cloak!"  It's full of creepy goodness for fans of the Dresden File, Repairman Jack, or Kolchak: The Night Stalker. And as always, if you buy from my site, you can pay whatever you like! You set the price!

Please share with everyone you know! Thanks!
Love a nice occult mystery with a downtrodden everyman hero? Pay what you want for "Cloak," a tale of the Protector storyworld from Matthew Wayne Selznick.
