Welcome to the HWA COS chapter’s monthly round-up of member news. We invite you to scroll through our publication announcements and see what our members are up to this month: new releases, book signings, readings, conventions, and more!
Carina Bissett is thrilled to announce the appearance of her story “An Embrace of Poisonous Intent” in the anthology Bitter Distillations: An Anthology of Poisonous Tales, published by Egaeus Press.
Bitter Distillations is a collection of disquieting, disorientating and otherwise uncategorizable tales for which poison provides the inspiration. This hardcover edition is limited to 340 copies.
In December, Carina also saw the publication of her linked vignettes created for a shared world in The Lost Citadel Roleplaying Game.
The city is called Redoubt, and as far as anyone knows, it is the last.
Dakota Brown has a new release in her Ocean Enchantment series with the publication of Siren’s Song: A Reverse Harem Tale.
My guys saved me from myself, but we still have a whole boat load of problems we have to deal with. We’ve got a kraken swimming around attacking boats. We have mages called in by the government to deal with the Kraken hot on our tails and the magical black market has us in their sights after we liberated a kelpie child from their cages. To top that off, while my guys got their siren tails right away, I still can’t shift into mine. (This book is intended for mature audiences.)
Shannon Lawrence and her co-host M.B. Partlow add a few new episodes to the series podcast Mysteries, Monsters, & Mayhem: Gunslingers & Shots in the Dark (December 23) and Arsenic & Old Money (December 30).
Gary Robbe is happy to announce that his piece “Poem of the Riverbank” is included in the anthology Todd Sullivan Presents: The Vampire Connoisseur.
These sixteen tales of night creature chaos were collected and edited by Todd Sullivan, the author of the Vampire Series of Extreme Horror.
Angela Sylvaine is pleased to share that her flash piece “Midnight Snack” is included in the section Cemetery Chillers in the anthology Campfire Macabre, published by Cemetery Gates Media.
50+ original flash horror tales organized by five themes: Spook Houses, Slashers, Witchcraft, Within the Woods, and Cemetery Chillers. A book perfect for time spent around the campfire or on a long car trip! Brand new pieces from award-winning storytellers and established authors.
In other news, Angela’s story “Starved” is featured in the anthology Consumed: Tales Inspired by the Wendigo.
Hunger that changes you…consumes you…turning you into a nightmare version of what you once were. From desolate snowy mountains and apocalyptic wastelands to New York’s sex clubs and virtual encounters, Denver Horror Collective brings you, dear reader, visions of horror inspired by the Wendigo.
Josh Viola’s “When the Trumpet Sounds” was published in Birdy Magazine. This story is a series of vignettes showcasing the lives of five very different people as the Rapture begins.
