Nightscript — Vol. I

Nightscript Issue #1Earlier this year, when I announced my intent to publish an anthology of “strange tales,” I was humbled and more than a little elated by all of the encouragement and high praise. A venture such as this would not have been possible without the enthusiasm of numerous gracious individuals, and for this I am grateful to the “Nth” degree. Now that my reading period has ended, I have started the process of typesetting and such, and my plan is to have Nightscript available for purchase on October 1st of this year. And so, without further ado, the “nightscripters” of 2015:

“Everything That’s Underneath” — Kristi DeMeester
“Strays” — Gregory L. Norris
“In His Grandmother’s Coat” — Charles Wilkinson
“The Cuckoo Girls” — Patricia Lillie
“The Sound That the World Makes” — David Surface
“Below the Falls” — Daniel Mills
“The Keep” — Kirsty Logan
“She Rose From the Water” — Kyle Yadlosky
“Animalhouse” — Clint Smith
“Tooth, Tongue, and Claw” — Damien Angelica Walters
“Momma” — Eric J. Guignard
“The Trees Are Tall Here” — Marc E. Fitch
“A Quiet Axe” — Michael Kelly
“The Death of Yatagarasu” — Bethany W. Pope
“The Cooing” — John Claude Smith
“A Knife in My Drawer” — Zdravka Evtimova
“On Balance” — Jason A. Wyckoff
“Learning Not to Smile” — Ralph Robert Moore
“Fisher and Lure” — Christopher Burke
“The Death of Socrates” — Michael Wehunt

To conclude, I would like to thank everyone who thought highly enough of my pet project to submit a story. I had to turn away a lot of fantastic stuff due to space limitations, enough to fill numerous other like journals.

That said, my next reading period begins January 2016. To keep abreast of all things Nightscript, please consider following its Facebook page.
