My tale features the return of an ongoing character, Caligula Wulf, who first appeared in my story Unnatural Acts.

This time Caligula Wulf time is accidentally summoned to mediaeval Hungary to face an undead hoard lead by their infernally powerful, and gibberingly insane, God-King…

More details coming soon…

“It was night time in the forest.
Cold.
Very cold.
Oh so very cold.
Dark.
Very, very dark.
Darker than chimney soot.
Darker than midwinter midnight.
Blacker than the heart of a thrice-born witch”

Cold-Hearted will be in Winter Tales published by Fox Spirit Books

Fox SpiritI’m extremely pleased to be able to say that my short story Cold-Hearted has been chosen for inclusion in a forthcoming anthology, Winter Tales, edited by Margrét Helgadóttir which is due to be published by Fox Spirit Books (probably early 2016).

Naturally I’m not about to give away any plot details but I’ll just say the story has a modern setting, takes a few unexpected twists, and the main inspirations were drawn from (amongst other things) some obscure Scandinavian folktales & Shakespeare’s “A Winter’s Tale”.
