The Entertainment Arrives

I’m very happy to announce that my short story, The Entertainment Arrives, has been picked by Stephen Jones for his annual anthology, Best New Horror #29.

This will be the story’s second selection for a best of, having just appeared in Year’s Best Weird Fiction from Undertow Press, edited by Robert Shearman and Michael Kelly.

I wrote the story as a tribute to the work of the wonderful Ramsey Campbell, an inspiring writer and friend. It’s a corollary to his tale The Entertainment, which I have long loved. So a huge thank you to Ramsey for allowing me to play with his toys! It was first published in the tribute anthology, Darker Companions, full of work celebrating his contribution to the genre, edited by Scott Aniolowski and Joe Pulver and sent into the world by those splendid folks at PS Publishing.
