Turning the Tied
This anthology published through the International Association of Media Tie-In Writers is a wonderful collection of uplifting stories created to benefit the World Literacy Foundation. Authors of novels, novelizations, and short stories set in some of the most beloved movie, TV, and game universes come together to tell new stories of venerated characters from settngs throughout the ages, such as Dracula, Sinbad, Frankenstein's monster, and (my personal addition) the Norse gods Baldur and Loki.
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 due out in March 2020.
