Grimdark is basically what it sounds like: a genre where light doesn't always win out. Might too often makes right. Heroes are flawed and sometimes lose. Idealism gets you killed. I don't want to read (or write) grimdark all the time, but I definitely enjoy some Thrones-style cliché busting now and then.
I was fortunate enough to have a short story in the inaugural issue of Grimdark Magazine. A very short story—just a flash fiction piece in which Naysin, the protagonist of my Red Wraith series, wonders what it must be like for those who recognize him. (I wrote the piece for a workshop several years ago. The prompt was to write in second person. It was hard!)
This brief story reappears in Knee-Deep in Grit, making me a tiny part of the anthology. So don't buy it just for me. But I snuck into the company of a lot of great authors here, and if you like anything I've written, you'll probably like what they have to offer too.
