Featured Works

“First Impression”—A cold-blooded assassin’s talent for fading into the background unnoticed, for never leaving an impression on anyone around him, is about to be tested one night in a hotel bar.

Two more short novels in Volume 2 of Tales of the Weird World War. Monster encounters are increasing and spreading, with incidents as far apart as Tokyo in 1954 and small-town Minnesota in 1955. Plus two bonus short stories!

“The Shadows Under Mariana Base”—Lovecraftian horrors visit a deep-sea research base perched on the edge of the Mariana Trench in a short story inspired by the 1970s cartoon Sealab 2020. (This is straight horror, not parody like Sealab 2021!)
