Been a long time since I’ve posted something here, but hey – I’ve been busy! Anyway, I wanted to post a bit of news I’m particularly excited about – I’ll be editing my first anthology! Here are the details:

NEVER WAKE: An Anthology of Dream Horror

NEVER WAKE will be edited by myself and Kenneth W. Cain, published by Crystal Lake Publishing the back half of 2023. But! (Yes, there is a BUT). We can only make this happen if we get this Kickstarter 100% funded. If done right, anthologies can be super expensive to make, so we’ve decided to Kickstart this thing. We’re running the campaign as a pre-order where our backers will receive early copies, but there is also an opportunity to get cool rewards like signed books, special shout-outs, and even have your name appear in a story by one of our headlining authors. The anthology will feature stories by:

Sadie “Mother Horror” Hartmann (Introduction)

  • Laird Barron 
  • Philip Fracassi 
  • Gwendolyn Kiste
  • Eric LaRocca
  • Lee Murray
  • Cynthia Pelayo
  • …plus more from our open call! (details when the campaign is funded)

We only have about 2 weeks left in the campaign and we are about 60% funded, so it’s going to be a tight race at the finish line. I’m still confident we’ll make it happen! I’m really passionate about this project and excited to bring it to life, so if you consider heading over to the Kickstarter page and checking it out, I’ll be forever grateful! Cheers! – TM
