WINTER HORROR DAYS

“As you sit warm and cozy in your chair by the fire, comforted by the pretty lights and decorations of your holy nights, a chill runs up your spine. At this time of the year, many terrors lie just beneath the tinsel. They bring a special kind of fear that can only be found in “Winter Horror Days.” From Omnium Gatherum, this volume features my story “Mother Night,” about an old man who has been kidnapped by faeries.

BONUS: You can hear me read from this story on the Shades & Shadows podcast number 010. This was from a live performance in Los Angeles in January, 2017, which also features the work of David Gerrold and Xach Fromson.
