New Release: Knee-Deep in Grit

Like Game of Thrones? Then you should check out Knee-Deep in Grit, a compilation of Grimdark Magazine's first two years of fiction.

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.

Cover of the historical fantasy novel Witch in the White City, by Nick Wisseman.

"... a wild ride sure to please lovers of supernatural historical mysteries."

Publishers Weekly

 

Neva’s goals at the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago are simple. Enjoy the spectacle—perhaps the greatest the United States has ever put on (the world’s fair to end all world’s fairs!). Perform in the exposition’s Algerian Theatre to the best of her abilities. And don’t be found out as a witch.

Easy enough … until the morning she looks up in the Theatre and sees strangely marked insects swarming a severed hand in the rafters.
