Great Anthology News

Back when I was just a guy who loved to read books and hadn’t thought of writing my own, I was blown away by the genre hopping greatness of this Texan dude named Joe R. Lansdale. He could effortlessly go from western to comedy to horror to high drama without missing a beat. I’ve been an ardent fan for decades and thought meeting him 2 years ago was the high point of my fanaticism.

Well, I was wrong. The high point is now! My story, Scab, is in the Morpheus Tales Weird Fiction Vol 2 anthology, alongside a story by my hero, Senor Lansdale.

From the publisher :

For the first time collected together, the best weird fiction from Morpheus Tales, the UK’s most controversial weird fiction magazine! Only the very best weird fiction has been hand-picked from the Morpheus Tales archives to create the second collected volume of the magazine Christopher Fowler calls “edgy and dark”. Featuring fiction by K.C. Ball, Skadi medic Beorh, L. R. Bonehill, Tonia Brown, Jesse Click, Tim Eagle, Chris Ewing, Ray Garton, Lee Gimenez, Gail Gray, K.J. Hannah Greenberg, Ian Hunter, Gary Inbinder, Dev Jarrett, Mark Howard Jones, Paul Johnson-Jovanovic, Fred R. Kane, Brian Kutco, Joe R. Lansdale, David Lear, B. Miller, Louise Morgan, Lee Pletzers, Hunter Shea, Fred Venturini, Nathan Wellman, C.E. Zacherl, and A. David Zapata. Established horror best-sellers rub shoulders with rising stars and newcomers in this diverse collection of short weird fiction.

Lovely cover, ain’t it? I’m so thrilled to be a part of this, I feel compelled to find some Lone Star and celebrate!

Print edition is available here.

E-book can be found at Amazon (with print coming soon).

About Hunter Shea

I’m the product of a childhood weened on The Night Stalker, The Twilight Zone and In Search Of. I don’t just write about the paranormal. I actively seek out the things that scare the hell out of people and experience them for myself. My novels, Forest of Shadows, Evil Eternal , Swamp Monster Massacre and Sinister Entity are published through Samhain Publishing’s horror line. 2014 will be busy, with my novella, The Waiting, and novel, Hell Hole coming out with Samhain, and my first thriller paperback, The Montauk Monster, with Pinnacle in June. I live with my family and untrainable cat close enough to New York City to get Gray’s Papaya hotdogs when the craving hits. I’m also proud to be be one half of the Monster Men video podcast, along with my partner in crime, Jack Campisi. Our show is a light hearted approach to dark subjects. We explore real life hauntings, monsters, movies, books and everything under the horror sun.

    Congrats, Hunter! I’m so happy for you! You serve as an inspiration I hope to follow!

    Hunter, congrats on your news. But alas, the cover art I do not like. :( Maybe because I am a woman and don’t want that to happen to me!

    • the happy horror writer says :

      The cover is hard to take. Even if it were a man, I’d be uncomfortable with the image. The fact that the subject is a woman is probably calculated to up the ante in our sense of unease; in that respect, it absolutely works.

      • Hunter Shea says :

        I agree that it’s a rough cover. I was at the Ripley’s museum yesterday with my daughter and they had an entire room dedicated to torture methods. Made me think of this cover.

    • Hunter Shea says :

      I have no arguement there. It’s a tough one to take, I agree.

      • hookofabook says :

        Probably a little close to home for me as a survivor of domestic violence, but from their marketing stand point it works for them I’m sure. That being said, I still love to read horror!! :)

  3. the happy horror writer says :

    I can’t even imagine how excited you must be, Hunter! To be published alongside an author you admire must be a great feeling. Congratulations!!
