Shroud Halloween Issue Still Available

Maybe you missed it last year. Or you didn’t happen to love me then as much as you do now. Whatever the reason, IT’S OKAY. You can still purchase the special Shroud Halloween Issue guest edited by Kevin Lucia.

This issue has my story “Red Lantern” in it, which is…not so much a retelling; more of an homage…to the Jack O’ Lantern myth.

I promise, it has nothing to do with DC Comics. When an author comes across the perfect title, geek or not, she just can’t pass it up.

Wanna see how perfect a title it is? Purchase the Shroud Halloween special issue (only $7.99!) and see for yourself.

Shroud Issue #10 ToC

Danny Evarts just posted the Shroud #10 Table of Contents — the special Halloween Issue guest edited by Kevin Lucia. The cover art (and sidebar) are by the always-fabulous Stephen Gilberts. Contributors include: Bob Ford, Kelli Owen, Maurice Broaddus, Rio Youers, Brian J. Hatcher, and MOI. Woooooohooooo! (I mean that in both the excited and spooky way.)

As the comic book geeks have probably noticed: yes, my story really is called “Red Lantern.”  There’s a great origin behind this one that I’ll post a little closer to publication date. But I promise…once you know what the story’s about, you’ll realize that there could not be a more perfect title.

Happy [early] Halloween!

Cover for Shroud #9

The cover for Issue #9 Beautiful art by Tom Brown! Design, layout and editing by Danny Evarts. It’s creepy and gorgeous all at the same time. And green, which is my favorite color, so no complaints from me. No sirree Bob.

The funny part is that when I first saw the cover, my eye immediately landed on Lon Prater‘s name. Dear Lon is a longtime friend and fellow Codex Writer. He’s a brilliant poet and not-too-shabby cake chef. He shares another ToC with me this year — in the Dark Faith anthology.

And the first thing I thought was, “That darn Lon gets his name on the cover of the Shroud magazine OF COURSE. Figures I don’t even get a mentio–”

And then I saw the right-hand side of the cover.

Ah. Oh. Uh-huh. Nevermind.I’ll shut up now.

But I still can’t wait to check out what Lon’s got. I’m a big fan.

You can purchase Shroud issue 9 directly from their website (pick up a subscription), or keep an eye on your local newsstand!
