It’s been a long time coming, but I will finally be releasing my first collection of stories this year. Hidden Folk will contain fourteen previously published tales, as well as two new ones written specifically for this volume. Preorders will start on November 1st, with a planned publication date of December.
“The writing here is so assured it’s hard to believe it’s a debut.”
—David Longhorn, editor of Supernatural Tales, on “Vrangr”
“An author of strange fiction to keep a close eye on.”
—Simon Strantzas, author of Everything is Nothing
Today I am thrilled to reveal the contents of volume four of Nightscript. As with previous years, the quality of submissions was outstanding, making it particularly difficult to narrow down the final ToC. I would like to extend a big note of thanks to everyone who submitted tales for consideration. As ever, it was a privilege to read your work.
