Truth or Dare
  • I "sold" this story previously, but the terms of the contract expired without me ever getting paid or the issue of the magazine ever appearing, so I withdrew the story from consideration and submitted it to Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep, a charity anthology from Necon E-books. All proceeds go to the Jimmy Fund at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Got my acceptance letter yesterday. The book will be launched at Necon in July, which I will be attending.
  • Here's the table of contents:

    Coming soon, the Necon Charity anthology - Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep edited by PD Cacek and Laura J. Hickman and published by Necon Ebooks. All proceeds go to the Jimmy Fund!

  • "Usually a simple, sometimes embarrassing, occasionally humiliating game. Usually it isn't injurious, seldom fatal. But when one of the players has a nasty agenda and the ability to back it up, the consequences can be horrifying. A really scary tale." -- The Haunted Reading Room
