Even This Acronym

In Uncategorized on October 26, 2016 at 12:18 am

I was asked if I’d like to contribute to a couple anthologies recently. One taking place in the V-Wars universe and the other taking place in the X-Files  universe.

For the V-Wars story, I wrote about life in Brooklyn after it’d been nearly decimated by war. The story centers on a somewhat sleazy, broke 20-something who, in the midst of a bad breakup, finds that he’s become addicted to sex with a hermaphroditic succubus.

For the X-Files story, I have Mulder and Scully come to my apartment in Brooklyn to interrogate me (Jade Shames) while I’m in the middle of writing the other story.

Scary Out There

HeyHey,

Some poems I wrote when I was a young adult were published in this book for young adults. You can purchase it here.

My poems are:

Sparrow

Thinking of Kelsey, and how she went to high school one year before I did and said that it was horrible, and how many years later she overdosed on Benadryl in a bathroom because she believed werewolves were waiting for her outside, but really it was a schizophrenic relapse

Trench Coats

War Paint

In the book, they didn’t bold the title of the second one, but yes it is a very long title. Really honored to have my work right after R. L. Stein’s—Goosebumps was my jam.

Big thanks to Jonathan Maberry for publishing this and a couple other short stories I wrote in other anthologies he edited.
