A young man who can hear death approaching buys a haunted car and must uncover the reason why everyone who rides with him ends up dead.

What inspired my story, "Bottom of the Hour" for A PLAGUE OF SHADOWS? Read on...

My first and only Star Wars fan fic was written in 1997, six years after Timothy Zahn’s trilogy of novels (beginning with Heir to the Empire) reinvigorated the Expanded Universe and two years before the dreadful prequels began.

However, the only background material I used for “Pursuit of Force” was what we learned in the original trilogy of films. I wondered what might have occurred in the time between A New Hope (ANH) and The Empire Strikes Back (TESB) without referencing any novels or short stories that might have addressed this at the time. Enjoy!

IT'S HERE! A Plague of Shadows is now available on Amazon. The paperback is currently on sale, and the Kindle edition can be pre-ordered. Just in time for Halloween! Ecstatic to have my story "Bottom of the Hour" in this anthology!

Expecting the usual? Please don’t. You won’t find haunted houses, spirit infested graveyards, demonic poltergeists, or possessed objects in these pages. It’s been said that there are no haunted places, only haunted people. That’s who you’ll find here, the haunted ones. A maintenance technician in Antarctica, an English thief, a young couple on a road trip across America, an astronaut on a one way ride to Jupiter, an Irish gravedigger, and dozens more. All victims of an otherworldly infection, all tormented by a plague of shadows.

This anthology includes stories and poetry by the members of the Written Remains Writers Guild, as well invited, renowned guest authors.

Starving Time -- Jane Miller
Bark of the Dog-Faced Girl -- Maria Masington
The Stories That We Tell -- Billie Sue Mosiman
For Number 11 -- Carson Buckingham
Bottom of the Hour -- Phil Giunta
Powder Burns -- J. Gregory Smith
Neighbors From Hell -- Graham Masterton
Finding Resolution -- Patrick Derrickson
The Fierce Stabbing and Subsequent Post-Death Vengeance of Scooter Brown -- Jeff Strand
On the House -- Jacob Jones-Goldstein
No Good Deed -- Gail Husch
Haunting the Past -- Jasper Bark
To Heart's Content -- Shannon Connor Winward
Twelve Steps -- Jeff Markowitz
Song of the Shark God -- JM Reinhold
Dollhouse -- Jennifer Loring
The Black Dog of Cabra -- J. Patrick Conlon

Ghosts, Vampires, and American History... brought to you by Firebringer Press!

Steven H. Wilson and I are excited to announce the upcoming combined release of Steve's vampire novella FREEDOM'S BLOOD with my paranormal mystery, LIKE MOTHER, LIKE DAUGHTERS in the format of the classic ACE doubles (read one story, flip the book over and read the other). Today, we launched a 30-day Kickstarter campaign to help bring this book to fruition by late November 2018.

LIKE MOTHER, LIKE DAUGHTERS sees the return of psychic-medium Miranda Lorensen from my novels By Your Side and Testing the Prisoner while FREEDOM'S BLOOD introduces a vampire like none you've ever encountered.

Please click on the link below to learn more. Our goal is only $750 to cover the cost of cover art, editing, set-up fees, etc. We're offering several reward levels including ebooks, signed paperbacks (including backlist titles), story critiques, and a membership to the Farpoint SF convention in February.

Please spread the word to anyone who might be interested. Thank you for supporting small press authors!

Posting this a day early since tomorrow is shaping up to be hectic.

In the conclusion of "Star Trek: Worlds of Doubt," Kirk, Mitchell, and the rest of the landing party attempt to escape the collapsed caverns on Dreknor—and a squad of Voitaan soldiers bent on killing them—before the two planets collide. Aboard the Enterprise, Spock coordinates the evacuation of both worlds while determining how to rescue his captain and fellow crew members.

Next week we travel to a galaxy far, far away...

In the second act of "Star Trek: Worlds of Doubt," Kirk and the Voitaan council begin to unravel the mystery behind the enigmatic aliens who have been abducting security and medical personnel from the research base on Dreknor.

Meanwhile, aboard the Enterprise, Sulu discovers that the narrow gravity well between the two planets is pulling them together on a collision course that will destroy them both.

If you've been following these old fan fic stories, I thank you and hope you're enjoying them! :)

How do you solve a murder on a planet where the human settlers have evolved into isolationists, communicating with one another solely by holographic projection and where the mere suggestion of physical contact or even close proximity is taboo?
