April Moon Books has just released the paperback edition (digital coming soon!) of ‘Short Sharp Shocks Volume 3: Ill-considered Expeditions’ which contains my short The Dig. If you’ve read the short I put out with Kerry Lipp in State of Horror: North Carolina you may recognize one of the characters! The anthology is currently available on Amazon.
Sixteen new stories to delight and horrify you from a mixture of critically-acclaimed writers and new-bloods. This will be a voyage of discovery for all concerned as successive teams of hapless explorers fall foul of the elements and monstrosities lurking in shadowy caves, hidden temples, icy tombs and even alien planets. From steamy jungles and back waters to unexplored islands and mysterious woodlands, researchers investigate alien artifacts and mysterious creatures, while others probe interdimensional portals, oblivious to the dangers. Some are motivated by the romance of discovery, others by the heady intoxication of greed, but all are doomed when their forays into the unknown world become terrifying tales of Ill-considered Expeditions!
