Maybe someone out there remembers this one. The unofficial cover from KnightWatch Press graces the top of my blog, as a matter of fact. Well, after a solid, short run, KnightWatch went kaput and tossed some of their yet-unpublished anthos overboard to other willing publishers. They were then taken over by a new imprint called Fringeworks. Anyway the antho I was contracted for never made it out of the gates. That’s life in small-time publishing, I’m really sad to say.
I wrote my story “A Pound of Flesh” back in 2011, just to give you an idea of how long this Civil War horror compilation has been on a slow simmer.
Anyway, Neon Moon Publications has taken over the contracts, and last I heard, the book is slated to be released in March. We shall see…
Here is the TOC, in order they will appear, as I understand.

I’ll keep you posted. They say good things come to those who wait, so this book should be a real firecracker by that logic.
