Witches Almanac #38 - New Articles

The cover for Issue 38 of The Witches' Almanac sports a gorgeous black cat, appropriate for a theme of Animals: Friends and Familiars.

I will have at least one article, "Horseshoes" in this issue. Stay tuned for more information.

Transmundane Press has just revealed the cover for Transcendent: Dreams, Nightmares, Visions, and Hallucinations, due out later this year, and what a cover it is. UK artist Dean Samed has successfully captured the "realm beyond reality" of the anthology.

I'm especially excited by this anthology because one of my short stories—name to be revealed later—is in it. Stay tuned for more information.

"There exists a realm beyond reality. A place where nothing is what it seems and anything is possible.

Each soul who travels to this mysterious world finds something different.

Some voyagers get lost in this land of DREAMS, forgetting their way back to the path, to home. Others experience intense VISIONS, glimmers of the past, present, and future, discovering sacred knowledge and infinite wisdom. NIGHTMARES also lurk in this land, twisted and horrible creatures wait in the darkest corners while HALLUCINATIONS reveal the unspoken truths of our hearts and souls.

Are you ready?

Step through the gate and leave everything you knew behind.

Step through the gate and become TRANSCENDENT."

Garage-cleaning Sale

I'm clearing out my book inventory for books that I sell at conventions and so on.  Over the years I've added more books (mostly anthologies and non-fiction) to the collection of books I sell at events and it's becoming a little unmangeable, so I'm having a virtual garage sale.

The following books are available for only 99 cents plus media mail shipping on eBay.

Alicia Anderson must resolve the difference between what her logical mind tells her and what she is actually experiencing when a very pale stranger enters the locked computer room.

Meanwhile, in another part of town, fledgling witch Matricaria has begun to receive psychic messages – vivid dreams and tarot card readings – that point to a terrible fate for someone near her. She and her coven attempt to decipher the symbols, hoping to prevent a tragedy.

Matricaria is studying to be a witch. Alicia is studying to be a computer programmer. Yet together they must learn to battle a common danger.

Can Matricaria, a mere trainee, decode the nightmares in time to save Alicia? Is Matricaria or her coven any match for a vampire who has lived for nearly a century?

Things are not well in the fictional town of Danforth, a mere 25 miles west of the largest city in New England. No doubt the easy access to a large population of prey is an attractive feature for vampires.

Can Alicia, logic-worshipping proto-geek, stave off the vampire? Will Evan’s congee burn in the pan? And what of the “Wizard of Westville”?

The Old Power Returns is the sequel to Darksome Thirst, but I wrote it with enough background so that new readers can jump right in. This one’s a little more fun than the first one, but doesn’t skimp on atmosphere or chills.
