Oh, Sing Me a Song about Murder…

Now that Egaeus Press has made the news public, I can announce how delighted I am to have a story in their forthcoming anthology, Murder Ballads.

murderballadMURDER BALLADS will be an anthology of stories inspired by that ancient oral tradition: Tales that share the intimacy of a fireside song, a family secret, a Victorian melodrama or the crumbling front page of a tawdry antique newspaper. They range from the folkish to the mythic; from the stuff of disquieting nursery rhymes to cautionary fables of crime and punishment: Sometimes tragic, occasionally humorous, often frightening, and frequently reminiscent of something from a blood-soaked penny-dreadful.

The book will feature new and previously unpublished short stories by Timothy J. Jarvis, Reggie Oliver, Angela Slatter, Helen Marshall, Rhys Hughes, Rosanne Rabinowitz, D.P. Watt, Daniel Mills, Lisa L Hannett, Philip Fracassi, Louis Marvick, Avalon Brantley, Brendan Connell, Stephen J. Clark, Colin Insole, Alison Littlewood, Charles Schneider and Albert Power.

The book is scheduled for publication in early 2017: I’ll share more details once they’re released! In the meantime, head on over to the Egaeus Press website to see more of their sumptuous, morbid fantastical works!
