Invaginies and Others

Four new fiction pieces are out in anthologies now! Ranging from black metal to Kate Bush, from mathematically impossible cities to the problems of doppelganger harvesting, there’s a broad range of madness, poetry, erotica, and rage to explore in my latest stories.

Here’s a few quick notes. Enjoy!

Eclipse, Embrace – in the anthology “Let The Weirdness In: A Tribute To Kate Bush” from Heads Dance Press – Exploring geology and the strange shapes love takes through the lens of the longest hug in pop history.

Leviathan’s Knot – in the anthology “Into The Crypts Of Rays: A Black Metal Horror Anthology, Volume II” from Castaigne Publishing – an erotic journey through the grave and back again.

Invaginies – in the anthology “Children Of The New Flesh: The Early Work And Pervasive Influence Of David Cronenberg” from 11:11 Press – I’m growing a copy of you to take my place in this cage. I’m going to find the field that grows the war. I’m going to fuck this building so hard it falls to the ground. (This is a charity anthology to benefit educational non-profit organizations.)

Chironoplasty – in the anthology “Your Body Is Not Your Body” from Tenebrous Press – in a mathematically impossible city, a centaur seeks illicit surgery in an alien body modification club. (This is a charity anthology to benefit transgender youth in Texas.)
