Life got in the way of my ability to attend this year's World Fantasy Convention--a shame, especially since my horror story "The Promotion" debuted in Skull Fragments - A Skelos Sampler, out from Skelos Press during the con. The story will appear in an upcoming issue of Skelos, but you can obtain the sampler from Amazon now.
