Three standalone novellas, telling three chilling ghost stories, by three of the finest new voices in fiction.

A full-time medium and part-time cook is recruited by the nightmarish Boneman to hunt down and destroy a monster...

Two children of warring houses, in a city-state ruled by the noble houses long-dead ancestors, fall in love...

In a hidden college in America, a man and the shade of his wife seek out the answers behind her death...

*bangs drum*

*throws lamp out of window*

My novella, The Boneman, is one of the three stories in this anthology. This has been a long time in the making, I submitted The Boneman to Abaddon’s open submission call way back in 2017. And now it’s finally coming out and I’m super excited for folks to get a chance to read it (and also a little terrified).

I’m honoured to be sharing space with fellow authors Martin Hall and Ali Nouraei. Both Martin Hall’s Unmasked and Ali Nouraei’s Magistra Trevelyan are phenomenal stories.

And a special thanks is necessary for all the folks at Rebellion who saw potential in my weird story filled with flayed flesh and boiling pustules.

Go! Purchase the thing! Inscribe all the reviews! Bequeath unto us thy stars!

The Horned Scarab - Out Now! by Matthew Marchitto

Ghorad-Gha, once magnificent city of clay and bronze, crumbles. Those prosperous few burden the shoulders of the downtrodden. In a city of forgotten glory, the lawless thrive. 

A monk turns up dead, and Arn is determined to find out why. Along with his stone skinned companion, Rohqim, they'll be dragged deep into Ghorad-Gha's underbelly, where the Horned Scarab reigns.

The Horned Scarab, a fantasy novella set in a prolonged bronze age, is now released for purchase. It's the first part in The Investigative Privateers series. It follows Arn and Rohqim as they investigate a murder and get dragged into a much bigger conflict. 

You can buy it now at: Amazon, Smashwords, Barnes & Nobles, and Kobo.

Moon Breaker Paperback by Matthew Marchitto

Moon Breaker now has a nifty paperback version. The interior was done by expert format-smith Skyla Dawn Cameron, and the cover illustration was done by the supremely talented Marek Jarocki. I had tried experimenting with the layout and cover on my own and botched it in magnificent ways. That’s when I decided it was best to reach out to a couple of folks who actually know what they’re doing. The result is a very professional looking paperback that I think could be nestled on the shelves of brick and mortar stores.

Pickup a copy through the eStore, Amazon, or Barnes & Noble.
