The cosmos is calling—will you answer?
Nightmare Sky: Stories of Astronomical Horror edited by Red Lagoe and published by Death Knell Press is now available—and my story, “Stargazer,” opens the anthology!
“Stargazer” is about a man who meets a woman on a dating app and discovers something impossible and galactic and wondrous within her eye during their first date. This revelation quickly turns into obsession, and…you’ll have to read the story to find out what happens next.
But it’s not just my story you should be excited about! This anthology is truly superb, featuring stories and poems that capture the overwhelming nature of space and the unknown. The pieces range from adventurous to heartbreaking to horrific and are penned by incredible authors in the horror and sci-fi communities.
About Nightmare Sky:
The very dust of the stars’ explosive pasts traveled lightyears across the unknown, and now that dust pulses through our veins, drawing our eyes up, back to our origins. Since the dawn of humanity, the stars have called for us to gaze upon their brilliance, and we sit around campfires making up tales of their histories. Tales which are often fraught with horror.
Ranging from psychological to apocalyptic, sci-fi to bizarre, quiet to gruesome and all the horrors in between, these 28 dark stories and poems explore our awe-inspiring—and terrifying—human connection to the stars.
Take a look through the eyepiece and into an astronomer’s failing mind. Observe an obsessed lover who can’t get enough of the celestial view. Board a space station as the last remaining people debate whether humanity is worth saving. And ask yourself…
What will you do when the sky begins to devour us all?
