Year of the Zombie… plus, y’know, Halloween

This month has been crazy for new releases of which I’m a part. It’s almost serendipitous the way things have come together, seemingly by accident, to give me 6 different releases this October! So, I thought I’d take a moment to share them all here.

On October 12th, the HWA Poetry Showcase Volume II was released, including my poem A Part of You.

Today, on October 28th, two different anthologies were released by different presses, both including a zombie tale by yours truly.

First, Corpus Deluxe Undead Tales of Terror from Indie Authors Press, which includes my story No Rest.

Second, the long awaited and much anticipated Putrefying Stories from Stupefying Stories/Rampant Loon Press, edited by Bruce Bethke. This includes the 2nd-ever zombie story I wrote, and which has a lot of personal meaning, titled From Colorado.

So there they are. Quite impressive, if I do say so myself! I’m extremely proud and delighted to be involved with all of them. They’ve all got that horror vibe, perfect for the Halloween season.

So, if you’re looking for something scary, why not try one of these gems.

Called to Battle: WORTHY VESSEL

Worthy Vessel cover

Worthy Vessel now available from Skull Island Expeditions…

In the blighted lands of Cryx, death is the inevitable price of power. 

The fearsome sorcerer and pirate Darragh Wrathe has long terrorized the oceans of western Immoren in the name of Toruk the Dragonfather, but the great dragon’s blessings are a double-edged sword, and the blighted energies Wrathe calls forth to destroy his enemies are slowly consuming him. Now with death an ever-present shadow at his side, Darragh Wrathe makes a pilgrimage to the black isle of Skell at the heart of the Nightmare Empire. There he will present himself to the enigmatic necrotechs of Cryx and seek to replace his failing body with the dark science of necromechanika. But immortality comes with a steep price, and Darragh Wrathe must barter more than his flesh to prove himself a worthy vessel of Toruk’s power.

This is by far one of the creepiest, most disturbing pieces of WARMACHINE fiction I’ve read, but, you know, in a good way. Cryx fans, you’re gonna dig this one. ~ Aeryn Rudel
