A Sneak Peek At The Terror of Miskatonic Falls

I’m going to be in a wonderful poetry anthology titled The Terror of Miskatonic Falls. It’s going to be a very beautiful, very creepy anthology, about an isolated town that gets a visit from something. 

I wrote three interlocking poems, and imagine my delight when Kevin Lucia posted an update on this anthology (last February, no less.  I’m a little slow on the draw) and he featured two of my poems! If you read them, notice that the first poem is titled “Tyson Sparrows”. That name should ring a bell with the second poem, a nursery rhyme for murdered children.  The third poem is my favorite, but we won’t get to see it until the book comes out.  Aw, nuts.

The pictures are lovely and chilling. Somebody taking the time and effort to illustrate our work  is one of the most humbling things I can think of.  I can’t wait to see the finished project.

  1. Did this awesome work every come out? I also got one of my first poem-things published in it, and 12 years later I’m still pumped about its release. Come on Miskatonic Falls!! – Sean 🙂

  2. Unfortunately, no! It was slated to come out, then it was canceled, then a different editor picked it up and that was also canceled. The terror of Miskatonic Falls was too terrifying to ever see the light of day! But super cool that you got in there as well. Here’s to us. 😀

  3. Hello! I ordered a copy of The Terror at Miskatonic Falls and just got the shipment notification email. I’m very excited about the anthology and can’t wait to red it! I’m not familiar with your work but am excited to read it. I also wanted to point out that the nursery rhyme for murdered children is one of the featured pages on website when you purchase it! Congrats!

    1. Thank you, Teresa! I hope you really enjoy it! So here’s a secret about that nursery rhyme: I wrote it before I had my last kiddo, and I liked the name Lillie Belle so much that we named our daughter a variation of it. So every kid has a story and, er, deadly jump rope chant written for them 😛 I promised her I’d write her something cheerier. I’m so glad you picked it up! And to be on the ordering page! What an honor. Thank you for pointing htat out!
