The newest issue of Benjamin Holesapple’s Turn to Ash is currently up for preorder, collecting thirteen dark tales and cover art by Matt Tisdale. I’m grateful (and more than a little honored) to have a story featured within. My entry, “The Church in the Field,” is loosely based on a news item that struck my fancy a number of years back about an elderly gentleman with terminal brain cancer who took it upon himself to restore a derelict church in small-town Minnesota; his condition miraculously improved upon doing so, and his ordeal ended on a largely positive note. But, as you might well imagine, my darker sensibilities took over from there and fashioned an appropriate “ghost” story out of it all.
I hope you’ll consider giving “Church” a read, as well as supporting this righteous small press endeavor by the talented Mr. Holesapple.
