Hello friends. It’s been a while, but I’m happy to announce an upcoming publication just in time for Halloween.
On Saturday, Oct. 30, Night Terror Novels will be releasing its debut anthology of transgressive horror fiction, Ceci n’est pas une histoire d’horreur (This is Not a Horror Story), edited by J.D. Keown. It features my short story, “The Gallery of Discarded Things” — an outsider anthem to all the misfits living on the fringes of society.
“The Gallery of Discarded Things” follows three homeless men living inside an abandoned amusement park. It is a sanctuary from a community that doesn’t want them, a place where they can be left alone. For the narrator, it is also a reminder of his youth, as he used to come to this park every summer with his estranged family.
But inch-by-inch, the outside world encroaches on the men. The society that cordoned them within the park is now trying to evict them. It culminates in a surprising and deadly standoff, leaving the narrator questioning whether he could ever assimilate back into a world that rejects him, yet won’t leave him alone.
Where can the discarded go when there is nowhere left to run? And what will they do when they run out of options?
Enjoy “The Gallery of Discarded Things” and 14 other dark delights in this wonderful collection from Night Terror Novels.
