New Short Story Published

My latest short story is complete! It’s entitled ‘La Danse avec Morte’, and been published in the 2016 anthology ‘Horrid Halloween’. It’s available at Amazon:


As a writer, I like to jump around. Little of my work even remotely resembles anything else I’ve written beforehand. It’s my way of being an explorer in the world of words. This story follows that convoluted path down a dark direction this time...
My previous anthology entry had a modern setting, but I wanted to write something with a classic and gothic tone, as if a lost work of Poe had been recently discovered.  Few stories today are written in this fashion, maybe because that style and subject matter have been considered ‘used up’ or exhausted, wrung dry like an old washcloth. I’d like to think that’s not true. You’ll have to let me know if I succeeded or not. Click on the ‘Short Stories’ link above to find it, and enjoy!
