The Junk Merchants Anthology

Updated: Mar 21

Some more awesome publishing news! My short story "Play by the Rulles" has been accepted into the new anthology THE JUNK MERCHANTS!!! I'm super excited. I'm absolutely stoked about this short story as it's getting back to my roots in weird cyberpunk sci-fi horror! This anthology is a collection inspired by the works of William S. Burroughs. One of my all time favorite Beat era authors. Thank you to Alex S. Johnson for the opportunity! happy dance with the bats

They're still finalizing the back cover copy, but here's the summary of the anthology:

The Junk Merchants 2 is a literary tribute to William S. Burroughs, created to honor him as a cultural mover and icon. Burroughs' works have had an extraordinary influence on everything from film to music to art to social media. This book contains work by legends such as Ron Whitehead, Maxim Jakubowski, Bram Stoker Award winning authors LL Soares and John Palisano, and many more, as well as up-and-coming authors like Rob Tannahill.
