It’s birthday for the anthology Winter Tales today! It was published by Fox Spirit Books in 2016.

This was a fun project to edit. I received over a hundred stories and poems after an open call for submissions, and selected 22 of these to work with.

Creepy, deliciously dark and grim tales to celebrate the winter season, and in between the sweet one. The stories are written in a multitude of genres: Crime, horror, science fiction, fantasy, post apocalyptic, superhero, the more literary.

The lovely cover is by S.L. Johnson.
