Reprint Sale: Servant of the Aswang

I sold a reprint of "Servant of the Aswang" to Ténèbres, a French horror and dark fantasy anthology edited by Benoît Domis.  This one won't see the light of day until sometime in 2017, so if you're anxiously awaiting this French translation, take a deep breath and put on your waiting pants. (That's a thing, right?)

Reprint Sale: Burning Men

Pretty excited to announce that my story, "Burning Men," has been accepted by Sci Phi Journal!

Sci Phi Journal is a fledgling magazine with a special focus. Each story featured is speculative fiction with a philosophical bent, and is followed by a brief "Food For Thought" section which explores the "big idea/s" behind each work. Not sure what issue my story is slated for, but I'll be sure to post more information when it comes. In the meantime, feel free to check out their first three issues at, both Kindle and in print.

Issue #68 of Apex Magazine just dropped and it includes my Filipino ghost story, "Multo." I'm absolutely thrilled to have it find a home as prestigious as Apex. Hope you love it!

Special thanks to Aunt Joy for providing new Tagalog translations and for correcting and/or verifying my own sad attempts. This story wouldn't even be half as good without her!

Tangent Online 2014 Recommended Reading List

Two of my stories made the Tangent Online 2014 Recommended Reading List. They are: "Servant of the Aswang" (Penumbra eMag Vol. 3, #6, March 2014), and "The Burden of Triumph" (Intergalactic Medicine Show #42, November 2014). I'm really proud of both stories, so it's nice to see them get a bit of recognition.
