The revised Kickstarter for the Discordant Love Beyond Death anthology, featuring a new story by me, starts today.
The publisher describes the anthology as a “thought provoking, often horrific, anthology of 22 dark fiction stories featuring the elements of death then love, and in that order.”

Each of the twenty-two stories is shaped by love, but none of them are standard romances. My story, “Nor Left Behind”, is a blend of police procedural and cosmic dread:
“What started as a simple opportunity for a police detective to do a good deed and annoy the crook that he can never seem to catch becomes the gateway to a series of inexplicable crimes.”
The publisher has created a streamlined series of rewards for the relaunch, including a limited number of launch day backer slots which get the paperback at a half price. There are also a variety of add-ons such as T-shirts and shot glasses for those who want to really immerse themselves in the Beyond Death reading experience.
