Sundress releases its 2018 Best of the Net Anthology.

Hey, gang — Sundress Publications has released its 2018 Best of the Net Anthology, and you can find it at the link below:

The Best of the Net 2018

Although I was lucky enough to have a short story nominated for the collection, it wasn’t ultimately selected.  (The editors of The Bees Are Dead nominated my science fiction-horror  story, “At the End of the World, My Daughter Wept Metal.”)

Congratulations to all of the writers whose work was selected!  I look forward to reading it!



Hey horror fans, check out this interview with Brialynn Massie!

Dennis Villelmi at The Bees Are Dead interviewed actress Brialynn Massie, who you may recognize from her roles in films like last year’s “Serena Waits” and “Lilith.”   It’s a terrific interview, and you can find it at the link below:

The Bees Are Dead. But there are visitation hours.

If dystopian or post-apocalyptic poetry is what your holiday season needs, then do stop by The Bees Are Dead.   There you can find “Survival of the Fittest,” by Howard Debs“ID,” by Duane Voorhees; and even a poem by that Eric Nolan guy (though, if you ask me, his stuff is strictly derivative).

Happy Holidays!

Eric Robert Nolan to be featured by the Piker Press

I’m honored to share here today that the Piker Press will feature five submissions of my writing in the coming months.

Editor Sand Pilarski has informed me that my horror/science fiction story, “Shine Now, Fiercely, Forever,” will appear at the weekly online literary magazine on December 10th.  This story was originally published in January 2017 by The Bees Are Dead.

Four poems of mine will also be featured between January and May of 2019: “Confession,” “This Windy Morning,” “Roanoke Summer Midnight” and “My Mother’s Apartment.”  These poems appeared over the last several years in the pages of Peeking Cat Poetry Magazine.

The Piker Press is a journal for arts, sciences, fiction and non-fiction that its creators like to think of it as “the illegitimate, online child of Analog and National Geographic, but funnier.”  It’s a great online periodical featuring fun and thought-provoking material from a range of voices.  You can find it right here at http://www.pikerpress.com/.
