I’m excited to share a sneak peek of the cover for an upcoming anthology on disaster-related horror stories, which will include my tale “What The Storm Brings.” The book, published by Stitched Smile Publication, is a charity effort to assist with Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. I’m greatly looking forward to this book for two reasons: I’m pleased to see authors and editors putting their talents to help others, and I’m also very intrigued to read a collection of disaster-related horror stories, one of my favorite sub-genres (when it’s safely in the realm of fiction).

More details, including publication date and donation information, soon to come!

After a bit of a publishing drought, some good news came through the last few weeks. I have stories appearing in five publications this fall. Three are available for order this month, just in time for Halloween! Details below:

Horror Bites Magazine

HBM1_20Cover_20(with_20titles)-2

The October 2017 issue of Horror Bites Magazine features a reprint of WHAT STORMS BRING, a tale of what happens when a superstorm brings more than just wind and rain to an East Boston apartment. From the editor:

Horror Bites Magazine is an online horror magazine. In each issue of Horror Bites Magazine, we cover the spread of horror found in the web’s darkest nooks and crannies, from creepypasta to creature features, to fiction almost too weird to be called horror.

California Screamin’

California-Screamin-frontweb-2

I am thrilled to share that one of my stories will debut in an anthology showcasing 14 Southern California-based horror authors. California Screamin edited by Danielle Kaheaku with an introduction by New York Times Bestselling author Jonathan Maberry, debuts in late October 2017. Check out that amazing cover!

From the webpage:

California.

Close your eyes and say it: California. Images of perpetual sunshine, swaying palm trees, and blue waters lapping at sandy beaches. That one word conjures visions of gold and fame, luring dreamers to its mythic shores. The original peoples lived in an abundant paradise. The Spanish found a familiarity to their homeland. The Gold Rush, Hollywood, and Silicon Valley promised instant wealth. But the beaches are only a sliver of this vast land. Beyond it lie expanses of deserts, mountains, and rugged coastline cutting it off from reality. Isolated, California reveals a dark side—wraithlike fog of the northern coast, dense shadows in ancient forests, and hellish heat of vast deserts. It is to these places you will journey. Within these pages, you will find stories of primeval specters, soured fantasies, transplanted vampires, bizarre geography.

This is the reality of nightmares…

This is California Screamin’.

 

Into Darkness Peering

Into-Darkness-Peering-Tyree-Campbell

Into Darkness Peering by Alban Lake Publishing, is a collection of dark tales inspired by Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Raven” and features a reprint of one of my ghost stories.

    Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there wondering, fearing,
Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before;
    But the silence was unbroken, and the stillness gave no token,
    And the only word there spoken was the whispered word, “Lenore?”
This I whispered, and an echo murmured back the word, “Lenore!”—
            Merely this and nothing more.
–Edgar Allen Poe 

 

 

I am honored to have my story reprint, “What the Storm Brings,” included in this Stoker finalist anthology with a number of excellent female horror writers. FRIGHT MARE – WOMEN WRITE HORROR is now available on Amazon in print and ebook format. Check out that eerie cover!

Check out my story OUT TO PASTURE, inspired by an achingly sunny drive through the flatlands of Florida, and other creepy scifi horror tales in this science fiction horror anthology, available for purchase on Amazon.

From the publisher:

More than a dozen never-before-published short stories that combine Horror and Science Fiction elements. These original tales, written by some of the best new genre authors, range from the horrifying to the humorous, the thought-provoking to the thought-twisting. All are diabolically entertaining.

“If you are looking for a wide variety of short science fiction stories with the flair of horror reminiscent of “The Twilight Zone” or “Outer Limits,” you need to look no further. WHAT HAS TWO HEADS, TEN EYES, AND TERRIFYING TABLE MANNERS? brings together a diverse assortment of works from some talented literary voices.” –Amazing Stories
