An Atlatl


April 11, 2016 by Laird

Limbus III is up for preorder. Five science fiction/horror/fantasy novellas featuring  Jonathan Maberry, Seanan McGuire, Keith R.A. DeCandido, David Liss, and me. Edited by Brett J. Talley My contribution is called An Atlatl and tracks the collision of a fading international supermodel and a skin-walker who’s traded in blood since humanity was still figuring the ins and outs of fire.

Per the JournalStone release page:



Limbus, Inc. – Book III

Release Date – July 29, 2016

The Limbus saga continues with five more stories of horror, science fiction, and fantasy from some of the industry’s brightest stars – Jonathan Maberry, Seanan McGuire, Keith R.A. DeCandido, Laird Barron and David Liss.

Thomas Malone thought he’d seen it all during his twenty-five years in the Birmingham homicide division. But then they found the body of a woman suspended above the opening of the mineshaft known as the Vertical, blood dripping into the chasm below. At the bottom of that shaft, two clues—a typed manuscript and a business card, blank but for a name on the front and a single sentence on the back.

Malone couldn’t know that those two enigmatic items would lead him on a manhunt around the world, on the trail of a murderer and an organization of myth and legend. But he shouldn’t have been surprised. The business card said it all.


How lucky do you feel?
