“The Bitches of Madison County” in The Beauty of Death!

My immediately next appearance will be in Alessandro Manzetti’s (he just won a Stoker award for his poetry collection) The Beauty of Death.  This little beauty features stories from a veritable galaxy of horror authors, and I’m pretty proud to be in it (and, incidentally, share a TOC with Mr. Peter Straub.

My contribution is a short story entitled “The Bitches of Madison County.”  Now, before you get all wound up about such a misogynist title, it’s hopefully apparent that it’s a play on that book by  Robert James Waller.  Except my story follows the downward spiral of a disgraced nature photographer who decides to photostudy the local…ummm…fauna in his apartment complex.  The story is dark, dark, dark, but does have a sort of sense of humor.

Anyway, this will be out sometime next month from Alessandro’s Independent Legions Publishing.  When I get more information, you shall have it.
