SOLITUDE features 16 tales of horror exploring what it means to be truly alone and forsaken. It might be the end of the world, a psychotic break, or a situation so bizarre and isolating that there are barely words to describe it, but what they all have in common is isolation, left to fend for yourself in these and many more terrifying situations.
Featuring stories by: Robert Allen Lupton, Jon Douglas Rainey, Craig Crawford, Jeremy Thompson, Henry Snider, Tim Mendees, M.J. Mellor, Stuart Conover, Edward Winkle, Scotty Milder, Tabitha Gidcomb, Richard Beauchamp, David M. Donachie, Tim Jeffreys, Watt Morgan, and Mike Kanner.
TERROR AT 5280′, containing my vampiric short story “Taste” released today and is available for purchase in print and Kindle formats.

DEADMAN HUMOUR, containing my short story “The Clown” released today and is available for purchase in print and Kindle formats.
In a world of shadows, joyful colours are an act of heroism.
Modern tales are filled with clowns who invoke fear not laughter: painted grins covering fanged maws; baggy costumes concealing unspeakable horrors; malevolent parodies of nature.
But the tools of a clown work for good as well as ill: only a trickster could tweak a monster’s nose; make-up is war paint for the modern age; the devil cannot tempt a happy soul.
What if, instead of being the demons of urban legend, clowns were the victims or the heroes of the story?
An entertainer discovers his latest booking is filled with clowns but no children.
A group of ageing clowns seek their Priest-King before the divine is lost from the world forever.
Yorrick’s apprentice shares the truth behind the death of Shakespeare’s most famous clown.
And ten more stories of clowns facing the supernatural.
