Sold: Collection & Novel


July 23, 2009 by Laird

I am proud to announce my agent Brendan Deneen has sold my second collection and debut novel to Jeremy Lassen at Night Shade Books. These will appear in October 2010 and summer 2011 respectively.

The collection is titled OCCULTATION and is introduced by Michael Shea.


Introduction: Michael Shea

The Forest

The Lagerstatte



 Six, Six, Six

Catch Hell

 The Broadsword


“Six, Six, Six” and –30– are orginals. Two of the stories are in the vein of Lovecraftian dark fantasy. The rest are occult and psychological horror pieces. In many ways the collection is a departure from THE IMAGO SEQUENCE. The book clocks in at about 90k, so it’s leaner than the first one.

The novel is called THE CRONING. It’s kind of like ON GOLDEN POND, if Henry and Jane Fonda were preoccupied with black magic, machetes, and cosmic horrors. This one is still underway with an estimated delivery date of July 2010.

    This is fantastic news! I can’t wait for them both … of course, 2010 and ’11 seem ages away.

  2. Congratulations, Laird.
