The book will consist of 17 supernatural stories, some new and some original, with each tale using traditional techniques of the weird tale to hopefully examine modern themes and concerns.

Outstanding news, Gary! My heartfelt congratulations, brother. An excellent publisher for what promises to be an excellent collection.
Weirdly enough, I once pondered using PIECES OF MIDNIGHT as a collection title. (*cue 'Twilight Zone' theme now*)
I'm happy for you, Zed.
Great news, Gary and well deserved!
Thanks, folks. I'm pretty excited about the whole thing.
Great stuff, Gary! Barbara and Chris are good people, and I'm sure they'll do you proud.
