RELEASE: What Dwells Below | #Horror #Subterranean @Sirens_Call

My newest short story is available as part of the horror anthology WHAT DWELLS BELOW, the latest release from Sirens Call Publications, who I am proud to say has published several of my short stories over the past several years. My own contribution to this volume, “Melvin’s Disgusting New Job,” features an unfortunate bloke named Melvin (considering the title of the story, did you expect it to be Phinneus or Kabuba?) who takes a job working a lonely job in a sewer, with only the rats, clumps of foul-smelling sewage, and various floating pieces of discarded human refuse to keep him company during his rancid midnight shift work site. Well, not exactly, since he soon finds out he has some additional company down there, something decidedly worse than the plethora of foraging rats and floating used condoms already surrounding him during his nightly eight hours in that subterranean realm of filth. What could it possibly be? Melvin isn’t exactly certain upon seeing it, but he quickly surmises that whatever it may be, it’s nothing that he nor anyone else with a single shred of remaining sanity or sense of self-preservation wants to spend a single moment alone with in that fetid environment–let alone eight hours every single night.

What are the implications of this story on the shared pulp hero/horror/crime noir universe I call the Wild Hunt Universe? Time will tell, but that may be something quickly running out for poor Melvin.

The twelve tales in this anthology explore urban horrors waiting just below our feet… Whether it’s the story of four boys who go searching for an urban legend only to come face to face with something far more sinister, or a man who watches those who dwell below under the cover of darkness while secretly coveting their subterranean existence, or tales of persons gone missing who disappear into the depths never to be seen again, there’s something in this collection to keep even the most staunch explorer above ground for a long time.
