My story, The Memory Thief, chosen for the Best of Dark Eclipse Magazine

The Best of Dark Eclipse – Volume 2 (Dark Eclipse Book 41)

It is with great honor that I can announce that my story, The Memory Thief, has been included in The Best of Dark Eclipse Magazine, Vol. 2. Dark Eclipse and its sister publication Dark Moon Digest has been turning out high quality, horror fiction for many years now. It has always been one of the harder markets to get into and I was happy getting published by them once, but now I am duly honored to have the story reprinted.

Lori Michelle was a pleasure to work with in editing the piece. She contacted me when she had read the story to suggest a few changes. The first was to change it to third person (I originally had it written in first person). Then she re-read and suggested a little trim here, a little more description there. I made the adjustments and it was accepted into issue #28. I’m so glad she took the time to work with me on those points of contention and saw something in the story that bosch_the_garden_of_earthly_delights_detail_c1500she felt would work in the pages of Dark Eclipse Magazine.

I knew The Memory Thief was a great little tale when I wrote it. It had the fine balance of poetic phrasing and description with direct story telling and it had a fantastic/mystical quality to it.  It is the kind of story that doesn’t come from a writer often, but feels like magic when it flows out of you. It is also one that comes from a place of personal experience (although disguised in the fiction) that makes it feel good to tell in a story.

I have been reading this “Best of vol. 2” and I am proud to be in this issue with such amazing high caliber authors and fantastic stories. If you want to know the caliber of story-telling the pro-market likes to publish, this issue would be a great place to read some excellent choices.

    I’ve been thinking of trying to get something published with these folks. It’s fantastic your story is included in a ‘best of’ – great validation of the effort you’re putting in.
    Keep it up!
