ZIPPERED FLESH 2, featuring my short story, “The Little Things,” has been uploaded to CreateSpace, and will be available soon through in paperback and Kindle eBook formats. Editor Weldon Burge has ordered a proof copy, and says he hopes to “send out review and comp copies in the next few weeks.”

ZF2 continues a tradition begun by Smart Rhino Publications’s ZIPPERED FLESH: TALES OF BODY ENHANCEMENTS GONE BAD! Hellnotes calls the first installment of ZIPPERED FLESH an “outstanding anthology.” In a review on This is Horror, J.D. Gillam says the anthology is “fresh” and “worthy of being added to your ‘to read’ pile.”  And Gabino Iglesias, in his review for Horror Talk, says ZIPPERED FLESH “delivered thrills that exceeded [his] expectations.”

ZIPPERED FLESH 2 features a few returning authors, and a number of newcomers to the franchise:

  • “The Modern Adonis” by Bryan Hall
