At Hell's Gates vol. 2 is now available! (w/ short story by me)

Hey folks,

    I wanted to share with you the good news that At Hell's Gates vol. 2: The Origins of Evil is now available for purchase from For those unfamiliar with the book, it is a charity horror anthology which donates all its proceeds to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.

    This means that every copy purchased not only gives its readers an excellent collection of horror tales but also is an act of kindness. It contains twenty-three individual horror stories all dealing with the "origin story" of a particular monster ranging from fairies to demons to zombies.

    For me, working on At Hell's Gate vol. 2 was a really great experience because it allowed me to stretch my writing skills from beyond the series I'd been working on (The Red Room, The Rules of Supervillainy, Wraith Knight), and focus, instead, on just scaring the crap out of readers. My contribution to the story, Cookies for the Gentleman is an attempt to do a modern fairy tale which reminds people as to why the Fair Folk is an IRONIC title.

    For anyone who wants to purchase a copy.

    Here's the description of the book by its editor, Devan Sagliani:

    Welcome back to Hell’s Gates! The palpable sense of dread may seem familiar, but this time things are a bit…different. Fresher. Newer. As though just recently born…

    See that squealing baby over there? He could grow up to be a lifesaving doctor (or perhaps the antichrist.) What about that scientist burning the midnight oil? He could be working on a bug zapper (or a doomsday device.) Did you catch that comet out of the corner of your eye? It might bring good luck (or an apocalyptic plague.)

    Yes, every darkness has a source, every monster has a birthplace, and every evil has an origin. In the second volume of the #1 Bestselling AT HELL’S GATES series, twenty-three of the finest dark fiction authors working today will force you to witness the ORIGINS OF EVIL. Each unique tale of terror traces an unspeakable horror back to its very beginning.

    All proceeds from this horror anthology series go to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, a charity benefiting military veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury. The authors and editors of this series are pleased to donate their time and effort to a truly worthy cause.   

    So sit back, relax, support a fine charity, and enjoy twenty-three tales of dawning calamity from some of horror fiction’s leading lights.

     I recommend all of my readers pick up a copy. You won't regret it.
