Thinking Horror

A quick note that Thinking Horror, Vol 2 has been published. It has an essay from me exploring the use of the uncanny video as a plot device in several recent(ish) works of fiction.  I’m excited for this to be out there and to share a table of contents with so many people I’ve admired or looked forward to reading in recent years.

As a general purpose update on fiction, I’ve got two stories making the rounds in search of their proper home that I’m quite excited about.  Have updated the bibliography accordingly.
