Another story online: At the Gates

Somewhat delayed by moving house, I've posted another of my previously-published short stories on my website.

"At the Gates" is either YA or horror or YA horror, depending on who you ask. This is actually the most recent story I've had published. It appeared in Black Static 8 last December.

I was going to post these stories in chronological order, but that seemed way too boring, so I'm just going to poke around like a malicious kid with a stick until they've all been poked.

Read the story here.

Colin Harvey very kindly described the story as 'Marvellous' in his Suite 101 review, and Ellen Datlow gave it an honorable mention in The Best Horror of the Year, volume 1.

I wrote it during the one semester I spent on the MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults at Vermont College, and I have to say, I'm smugly pleased with it. :)
