The Gate 2: 13 Tales of Isolation and Despair


Doesn’t that title alone make you want to pick it up?  What if I told you that one of the dark tales was mine?  What if I also told you that writing it inspired this post on writing the darkness?  It was a strange new world for me, but I love how “Black Mary” turned out.  Robby D. turns out a great collection, and Jesse Young did a fabulous cover.  I dig the illustrations that he did for “Black Mary”, too, and can’t wait to see the rest of them.

Let me show you the awesome Table of Contents!

  1. Looks pretty flippin cool, Mercedes. My first pub was in an anthology like this, and I hated the cover, not to mention the other stories (don’t tell anyone).
