Strangled by Death


Will's first Kolchak: The Night Stalker novel is a supernatural thriller starring 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 as he tracks down a burglar who robs rich, aging actresses while they sleep without tripping any alarms. To complicate matters, 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 on sale now.


Update: Will has written a second Kolchak novel (as well as two Kolchak short stories). All of these will be available soon. Watch here for more details.





Castle of Horror: Thinly Veiled: The 80s


Volume 8 of the Castle of Horror anthology series features a brand new story I wrote specifically for this collection. The Thinly Veiled series features iconic media and retail properties from a decade without naming them. My story, "Novelty," for example is about a college-age kid who finds a plastic-string-covered ball toy his dad once played with in the 1980s that hides a deadly secret inside.


You can buy Thinly Veiled: The 80s on Amazon.
