  1. Awe disappointed I’ve only just discovered this after reading your story in Night Shadows: Queer Horror (which was brilliant by the way!).

    Will have to keep an eye out for the next call for short stories :-).

    • Definitely! I love working with these two editors. I’m hoping to finish something for them before the deadline too. I’m glad you liked the story in Night Shadows, too (compiled by another pair of editors I really admire).
