Robin Lockslay – Serial Fiction

My first go at episodic fiction is ‘Robin Lockslay’ – a re-imagined version of Robin Hood.


It’s an episodically released story. Think of a TV show were you get an episode every week or so. The same goes for the written word. Amazon h...

So the other day I was walking through the house closing up the windows for the hot day ahead. Alpha Man’s office window was one of the open ones. I had to crawl up on his desk to get the window shut, which did not make my morning and then it got worse. I shut the door behind me and as I did, the...

I write for those who, when—in real life, or a book, or a song—they touch something that makes them shiver, don’t turn and run, but turn and follow. For those who aren’t afraid of what they don’t know. Those who love to discover something new, something different.

Eighth-graders frequently seem confused about how grown up they are. And do you blame them? Not me. Twelve to fourteen-year-olds pay adult admission, and are about to make the giant leap into high school, yet they’re not allowed to drive or work. Bummer. Girls, already on the road in developing...

Ghost Story - Peter Straub



Audiobook horror fans, the Audible edition ofGhostStory, as read by Buck Schirner, is one of the best performances I’ve heard. His characters are subtly different in tone. He’s never over the top orcheesy. I highly recommend this version of the novel.
