SHORT STORIES

Writing is generally a solo exercise. One person in a room, at a laptop, writing alone. Sounds lonely, right? Thankfully, I've had the opportunity to write for a number of anthologies. This is as close as writing comes to being a team sport. 

The collections below contain some of my favourite stories. Plus, there's something special about writing alongside Hugo Award winners, indie pioneers, and up-and-coming superstars.

The Future Chronicles

The Future Chronicles is a series of speculative fiction anthologies produced by Samuel Peralta. Each volume targets a different theme, from robots to the end of the world. My entry into these anthologies coincided with my love affair with horror/comedy. Expect violence, humour, and flawed (but sympathetic) characters.

  • Mia vs Vegan Cannibals (The Doomsday Chronicles)
  • Drop Bears (B-Movie)

Coming early 2017.

TALES From THE CANYONS OF THE DAMNED

Tales from the Canyons of the Damned is a series of slipstream short stories produced by Daniel Arthur Smith. These are tales inspired by Lovecraft, King, and The Twilight Zone--featuring everything from horror and science fiction, to magical realism and fantasy.

  • Bloom (No. 4 and Omnibus 1)
  • Losing Seconds; Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying About the Time (No. 7 and Omnibus 2)
  • Inside of Me; Or, How I Became a Fugitive in My Own Country (No. 10 and Omnibus 2)

Other Anthologies

No Way Home and Crime & Punishment are themed anthologies produced by Lucas Bale and edited by Alex Roddie. My story 'Bang:Bang' is a personal favourite of mine, and perhaps the moment in my career where my definitive style first clicked into place.

  • XE; Or, People are Crazy (No Way Home)
  • Bang:Bang (Crime & Punishment)
