My first anthology as editor is now out in the world. Clan Destine Press asked me if I’d like to edit an anthology for them and the supernatural horror and crime beast called Damnation Games was born. I invited a slew of amazing authors and opened general submissions to the Australasian Horror Writers Association and the spread of stories I got blew my mind. This really is a special book. The wonderful cover art is by the talented Luke Spooner of Carrion House. Here’s the table of contents:

Gene Flynn – “A Bitter Yellow Sea”
Alan Baxter – “The Question”
Chris Mason – “Miss Jam”
Philip Fracassi – “The Resident”
Aaron Dries – “Kookaburra Cruel”
Gemma Amor – “The Zoo”
Rick Kennett – “The Faces in Morgan Alley”
Lee Murray – “The Hungry Bones”
Robert Hood – “Dangerous Specimens”
Kaaron Warren – “Remnants and Bad Water”
Gemma Files – “Black Cohosh”
Joanne Anderton – “The Infinity Effect”
Gabino Iglesias – “The End Will Emerge from the Filth”
Maria Lewis – “The Invited”
John F.D. Taff – “Ghost Gun”
Dan Rabarts – “Spool”
Cina Pelayo – “She sleeps, nor dreams, but ever dwells”
J Ashley-Smith – “Men Without Faces”
Kyla Lee Ward – “The Value of Graves”
