My over 50stories appeared in a variety of magazines, webzines and anthologies. Most of my stories are dark, bordering on horror, which comes natural if you've done time as a reporter out there in the real world.
I'vestopped writing fiction in the past couple of years, trying instead to write non-fiction and research, the kind that gets you eventually promoted to full professor. Curiously, writing fiction doesn't really get you promotion, at least not for a journalism prof. Go figure.

"Horror is not a genre like the mystery or science fiction or the western. It is not a kind of fiction meant to be confined to the ghetto of a special shelf in libraries and bookstores...Horror is an emotion."
