Castle of Horror 10

The popular THINLY VEILED collection from the Castle of Horror continues with this anthology of horror stories set in the worlds of Saturday morning pop culture from the Smurfs to Soul Train. But, every one of these brands is "thinly veiled."

This volume features stories from P. J. Hoover, Jeremiah Dylan Cook, Dennis K. Crosby, Alethea Kontis, Joy Preble, Steven Philip Jones, Heath W. Shelby, Tony Jones, Bryan Young, Scott Pearson, Katya de Becerra, and myself.


My story follows a certain lucky rabbit who is great at counting to seven, and take a grim look behind the scenes of his magical "luck" power.


Castle of Horror is available now from Amazon.



Hotel of Horror


Will's second Kolchak: The Night Stalker finds Carl spending Halloween weekend in the infmous Hotem Cecil, renowned for its 100-year history of murders and suicides, as well as being home to two of Los Angeles' worst serial killers.


When guests see ghosts and then people go missing, Kolchak must determine if the hotel's new owners are just leaning into horror tourism or if there is something much much more sinister at work inside the "Hotel of Death."


Published by Moonstone Books, Hotel of Horror is available now.
