Have you been keeping track of all my releases this month? We’re up to three now, with more to come! (And you can preorder Astounding! at 30% off! The sale ends June 14).
But today I want to talk about the book that came out today. It’s called Of Heaven and Hell, and it’s an anthology with angel and demon themes. Yummy, right? My story is “Corruption.”
This story is a little unusual for me, in that I wrote the first few paragraphs some time ago but then let it sit. I almost always finish what I start. But I knew this one was going to be fairly dark and other deadlines were pressing, so I put it aside. But I really wanted to write it!
The feeling of a story is often as important to me as plot and characters, and this one felt a little like a 1930s noir tale–think Dashiell Hammett–and a little like Ray Bradbury in an especially dark mood. So yeah–if Dashiell Hammett and Ray Bradbury had a gay love child, it would be “Corruption.”
Anyway, I am very pleased with how the story came out, and I hope you will be too. You can read it–and several other terrific tales–now. And you can get the book for 40% off!
