My New Collection Is Out!

My latest collection, "Bleeding is Easy if You Know How to Open Up," is now up at Amazon:

Here's a quick rundown:

Things are going to get strange from here. Fairy tales merge with science fiction to create a new mythology for the present. Those exploring the depths of Space-Time feel they’re trapped in terrible dreams and not experiencing the adventures they were promised. Lives are reflected upon from a future prison cell one shares with one’s family, or from beneath a collapsed building all alone in the darkness. Beauty is formed in the nothingness between works. Romance is sought in the face of mortality. Emotions are sold. Lawns are trimmed. Hope is found within Lovecraftian despair. Hope is found within Lovecraftian despair? That’s the most ridiculous sentence in this summary!

Stories include, and are limited to:

That Feeling You’re Feeling
Tempus Fuhg It
Expiration Date
I was Meant to Live Another Thousand Years
You Will Find Yourself Buried Beneath Rubble
Those Who Live in Negative Space
Turf War 2200
Life-in-Death was She
Three Princesses
Between Worlds
The Shallow One
