Candle in the Attic Window is the latest anthology from the amazing editors at Innsmouth Free Press. The anthology is focused on providing a new take on Gothic horror, that well-loved grandmother of modern horror. Candle features a story of mine, “Frozen Souls,” about Chinese immigrant railroad workers blasting a tunnel through a particularly infamous section of the Sierra Nevada mountains. I’m proud of the story because it weaves history with horror, and it’s one of few works I’ve produced with a mostly happy ending.
The anthology hasn’t been printed yet, but you can order a pre-sale copy for 20% off on the Innsmouth Free Press website or enter to win a free copy on Goodreads. If you like spooky, dramatic horror stories in the tradition of Edgar Allan Poe, Mary Shelley or the Bronte sisters (or even Charles Dickens!), then this is an update to the classic genre that you should enjoy!
