“Thirteen Seconds” to appear in POSTSCRIPTS TO DARKNESS III

The original POSTSCRIPTS TO DARKNESS anthology, edited by Sean Moreland and Dominik Parisien.

My short story, “Thirteen Seconds,” has been accepted for publication in POSTSCRIPTS TO DARKNESS III, to be edited by Sean Moreland and Aayla Ahmad, and published in the summer of 2013 as a paperback.

Moreland earned his PhD in English and American literature at the University of Ottawa, where he now teaches part-time. His areas of expertise include modern and contemporary American fiction, Gothic and horror fiction and film, gender and psychological theory, and (post) modern poetics. Moreland and Ahmad co-edited the scholarly collection FEAR AND LEARNING: ESSAYS ON THE PEDAGOGY OF HORROR (McFarland, 2012).

Ahmed’s doctoral dissertation was a comparative study of horror fiction, and her research interests include the cultural politics and poetics of horror fiction and film, feminist activism, and diasporic cultural production. She wrote “Gray is the New Black Face: Race, Class and Zombies” for GENERATION ZOMBIE: ESSAYS ON THE LIVING DEAD IN CONTEMPORARY CULTURE (McFarland, 2011).

“Thirteen Seconds” is a dystopian super-science story about a scientist who is convicted by the court of a totalitarian government and sentenced to death–giving him the chance to conduct one last experiment in front of a world wide audience.
