Praise for “Tendrils Never Lie” – Thank You!

I like “Tendrils Never Lie” by Kevin A Ranson. It successfully incorporates some classical horror concepts into a very well observed and executed modern setting.

BestOfTheHorrorSociety2013That blurb is one tiny part of a full anthology review of The Best of The Horror Society 2013 available on Amazon. Someone not only reviewed the book but talked up each story inside; you don’t see that kind of thing very often, so I had to share! Here’s more:

There are some very good writers here. Along with the legenary William F. Nolan, the only living writer I know of who can be included along with the likes of Robert Bloch, Richard Matheson and Ray Bradbury. Included too are rising stars Richard Thomas, Weldon Burge, Joe McKInney, Aaron Warwick Dries, Robert S. Wilson, Scott Gorsiak (grin) and editor Carson Buckingham. Twenty-Five Tales of short and not-so-short, high quality and mostly unfamiliar shivers. Authors are included I’ve never heard of, but I chalk that up to personal ignorance on my part. One Hell of a lot of good horror writers have shambled their way into print and eprint over the last few years. It’s enough to make you throw your typewriter against the wall and try writing Harlequin Romances.

“Tendrils Never Lie” Accepted into Horror Society Anthology!

tendrilJust got the word: my short story “Tendrils Never Lie” was accepted into the first annual anthology for The Horror Society, “a community of authors, artists, screen writers, filmmakers, actors, editors, publishers, and musicians who work and contribute to the universe of Horror.”

The anthology should be published in ebook and in print in the coming months, so I’ll provide more details as I get them. Looks like it’s going to be a very cool book!
