Fear: An Anthology of Horror and Suspense is now out. My short story,
The Stick is one of ten in the book. The book is getting good reviews, as is my story. In one of two reviews that cover the stories individually, the reviewer had this to say (I posted the other individual review some time ago here):

'The Stick' is the story of teenager Xerxes, who learns that a boy has hanged himself from the tree that the local kids use as a swing. Xerxes goes to investigate, and is curious enough to want to touch the body. He recognises the body as Bobby, a bookworm who was later rumoured to have dabbled in the occult. Xerxes picks up a stick to poke Bobby with, and realises it's got arcane symbols carved on it. The stick takes on a life of its own, and toys with Xerxes until it helps him attack a bully. But the stick's work is not over yet…
An excellent short story, full of tension, mood, and good characterisation. The best of the stories in this collection. 5 Wands.

It's great in itself to be published, but when you get good reviews on top of it? There's nothing like it!

Way to gooooo!
