My story “Comes the Piper” is now available in the current issue of Plasma Frequency. This is probably the closest I’ve come to writing a horror story, but even so, I would probably describe it as “horrific” more than “horror.” This is also the only story I’ve written that actually bothered me enough that I stopped writing it in the middle of the first draft. I didn’t plan to return to it, but the story haunted me and wouldn’t go away until I forced myself to finish it. I still get an unsettled feeling when I think about what I’ve written—there’s some dark stuff in my psyche, I guess . . . dark enough that I don’t want to think about it.
“Comes the Piper” is a good story, however. Dark and subtle and horrific on many levels, it’s probably not one for the squeamish, but if you enjoy that kind of stuff, I hope you’ll check it out, and, more importantly, enjoy what you find.
