Save Wolves, Read An Awesome Book

WolfWarriors

Cover design by Matt Cowan and Marshall Stevens. Wolf Warriors copyright Thurston Howl Publications.

Great news, internet! The anthology I’m in is out! Wolf Warriors: The National Wolfwatcher Coalition Anthology is a wolf-themed charity anthology to raise money for the National Wolfwatcher Coalition, which seeks to educate people about wolves and their importance, as well as advocating for their preservation. The anthology is chock-full of lupine art, fiction, flashfiction, and essays of all genres, so fantasy fans, nature/animal lovers, literary folks, non-fiction people, art enthusiasts, and all manner of readers can all find something to enjoy.

The anthology also features stories by David Clement-Davies (author of The Sight, Fell, and Fire Bringer) and two-time Hugo Award winner Catherynne M. Valente (author of the Fairyland series)! I’m super stoked to be in an anthology with them and can’t wait til my copy arrives so I can read “Fell’s Dream” and “The Wolves of Brooklyn”.

Chosen

Chosen 2013 – REDHEAD eZINE.

My epic fantasy short “Chosen” was published in Redhead Magazine last fall. It deconstructs/subverts a lot of the tropes in epic fantasy and sword & sorcery that I both love and hate. It’s kind of an ode to everything wrong with the chosen one hero story, especially in generic B-Fantasy. If you love and/or hate hero stories (or just have twenty minutes to kill), I hope you’ll check it out.
