Who’s Ready to Preorder Last Night in the Damned House?!

Is it you?! Are you ready?!?! Goddamn right you are. The new and improved Velox Books edition of Last Night in the Damned House and Other Ghost Stories will be here on August 1st, and you can preorder right now for just $2.99. In other news, the publication date of the new Ash and Bone: Tales of Terror has been moved up, and is dropping on June 13th! And what of Apartment 239, you ask? Well, it’s being edited as we speak, so expect it this summer on a date that doesn’t conflict with my other books! That’s all the news I have for today. No, wait! My wife bought me a life size wooden cut out of Bigfoot, and now my life is complete in a way I never knew possible.

My Horror Collections Are Joining Velox Books!

Well, I have an exciting announcement. My four horror story collections will be joining Velox Books.

This includes:

The Last Night in the Damned House

Ash and Bone: Tales of Terror

Find Us and Other Stories

We Will Find a Place for You

They’ll be missing from Amazon for a few weeks, but the new and improved editions will be back, and available on multiple platforms, in ebook and paperback. At the moment, there are a handful of paperbacks you can buy on Amazon with the Desert Creek Publishing imprint, so get ’em while you can! If I die unexpectedly, maybe they’ll be worth something!

You can add your email to this mailing list to receive updates on the status of my collections, and a FREE ebook (The Pen Name by David Jacob Knight) for your trouble. I’ll keep you updated!

Let’s All Stare Into The Abyss

Guess who got to talk to Richard Gerlach and Matt Brandenburg all about Joe R. Lansdale’s classic short story, Tight Little Stitches in a Dead Man’s Back? It’s a heartwarming tale-okay, you know that’s a lie. It’s weird, gory, and emotional in a way that only Lansdale could pull off. Learn more about this tale, and the unsettling short film Possibly in Michigan, in this episode.

Review in Scream Magazine!

Guess what? I’ve had my first book review in a magazine! Issue 72 will feature a write up about We Will Find a Place for You. Pretty incredible seeing this in physical media, especially in a magazine as epic as Scream. A huge thank you to Mother Horror herself, Sadie Hartmann! So, be sure to pick up issue 72! Or else…

Well Read Beard and Steve Talks Books Review Ash & Bone

Ash & Bone: Tales of Terror is my second short story collection, and one with a focus on monsters human and otherwise. I was so excited to see two great voices in indie reviews take a look at it!

Well Read Beard is an indie reviewer extraordinaire, and one who loves short stories. His Shorts On Shorts series is a must-watch for any fans of short fiction. If you love indie books, you gotta subscribe. Here’s his review of my collection.

Steve Talks Books puts a major focus on all things horror and grimdark, and he was kind enough to take a look at Nature of the Business, the first story in Ash & Bone. Steve has some fantastic interviews with indie horror authors. Again, a must-subscribe.

A New Website And A Mummified Outlaw!

Welcome to elfordalley.com! Where you will find out about my latest horror stories, read about the weird tourist traps I visit, and of course, cringe at my fringe political beliefs. I’m sorry retail work radicalized me, Joyce, but I won’t apologize for my A Guillotine for Every Billionaire platform, I just won’t! Anyway, today I’m talking about this new fancy site, and failed-bank-robber turned successful-Halloween-decoration, Elmer McCurdy.
