  • “The Demons of King Solomon” anthology,  edited by Aaron French and featuring stories from Seanan McGuire, Jonathan Maberry, Richard Chizmar, Whitley Strieber, myself,  and others great writers, has just been released by JournalStone.  My short story “Class of 72” appears in it. “Class of 72” features the demon Abyzou. I know many of you are sensitive to stories featuring children, so if you pick it up, promise you’ll hang in there with me till the last sentence. You know I’ll take you dark places, but I always bring you back. Get “The Demons of King Solomon” here:   OR order through your favorite Indy bookstore OR even better, ask your librarian to order a copy for you local library branch.
