Strangled by Death
Will's next novel is supernatural thriller starring one Carl Kolchak, the intrepid reporter and monster hunter famously played on the small screen by Darren McGavin.
Now working for a Hollywood rag (and still hounded by his editor Tony Vincenzo), Kolchak must bear through a California heat wave (mostly by complaining) as he tracks down a burglar who robs rich, aging actresses while they sleep without tripping any alarms or leaving a trace of evidence (save some weird wax deposits). Just as this scant evidence points to a supernatural perpetrator, a rash of gruesome stranglings of young and vulnerable aspiring starlets threatens to push the already overheated city over the edge.
Published by Moonstone Books, Strangled by Death is out on April 26. Preorder now.
Renegade Legion Universe Anthology
I was asked by Budgie Smuggler Games to submit a story for a digital anthology to promote the release of their Renegade Legion Universe science fiction RPG setting.
No more information I can share at the moment, but I'm very happy with the story (and the editors seem happy as well). It is a fun, Ocean's Eleven-esque adventure set in a cool far-future universe. I love the characters and hope I get a chance to explore their backgrounds in a future RLU project as well.
Take a look at the Budgie Smuggler website for more information as it becomes available (and their social media links).
