This anthology hit bookstores a few weeks ago, and I’m stoked to have a story included. Here’s the lowdown on End of the Road:
“Each step leads you closer to your destination, but who, or what, can you expect to meet along the way?
“Here are stories of misfits, spectral hitch-hikers, nightmare travel tales and the rogues, freaks and monsters to be found on the road. The critically acclaimed editor of Magic, The End of the Line, and House of Fear, has brought together the contemporary masters and mistresses of the weird from around the globe in an anthology of travel tales like no other. Strap on your seatbelt, or shoulder your backpack, and wait for that next ride… into darkness.
“An incredible anthology of original short stories from an exciting list of writers including the best-selling Philip Reeve, the World Fantasy Award-winning Lavie Tidhar and the incredible talents of Sarah Lotz, Ian Whates, Jay Caselberg, Benjanun Sriduangkaew, Zen Cho, Sophia McDougall, Rochita Loenen-Ruiz, Anil Menon, Rio Youers, Vandana Singh, Paul Meloy, Adam Nevill, and Helen Marshall.”
I’d been wanting to work with Jonathan Oliver for a while, so when he invited me along on this roadtrip, I jumped right on board. My story is called, “The Widow,” a particularly nasty little piece about love, revenge, and madness. One reviewer has called it, “ … certainly End of the Road’s most insidious story.” Yaaaaay!
So if you want to read this “insidious” (yaaaaay!) little tale, along with a goodly selection of other sinister stories, just trek on down to your local bookstore, or click one of the links provided below:
Until tomorrow, travellers …
