This edgy, fantastical work is coming soon from Forbidden Fiction. The manuscript has had a troubled past. Although it has wowed some editors, the subject matter (dark, alternative politics) has been a little too heavy for most of the anthologies for which it has been considered. D.M. Atkins at Forbidden Fiction, who has been very encouraging of my work and just a pleasure to work with, decided to publish it.
More news about this project soon.
