He has over 100 stories and non-fiction works appearing in publications around the world and has edited multiple anthologies. He currently publishes the acclaimed series of author primers created to champion modern masters of the dark and macabre, Exploring Dark Short Fiction, and he also curates the new series, The Horror Writers Association Presents: Haunted Library of Horror Classics with co-editor Leslie S. Klinger (SourceBooks). Also out now is his story collection, That Which Grows Wild (Cemetery Dance) and novel, Doorways To The Deadeye (JournalStone).
