Coming in 2017!


Just announced! My first short story collection since Sometimes the Angels Weep will be coming out in 2017 in both trade paperback and ebook editions. This is a huge deal for me and I hope for you, too. And yes, you're reading the cover right—unlike Weep, this collection actually has a theme. Speculative fiction. All of it. Science fiction and fantasy from cover to cover.

Speaking of covers, what do you think? I adore it, but then, I suppose I'm a little biased 🙂

A lot of these stories have been previously published, but at the same time a lot haven't. And the ones that were previously released aren't easy to find anymore. Now they will all be collected together in one volume. There are many, many stories in this book and I'm sure everyone will have favorites.

I'm pretty excited about this, in case you can't tell 🙂

Michael out.

  1. I love the Alaba­ma mys­ter­ies and just fin­ished the newest Sticks and Stones! I real­ly didn’t like that [MICHAEL EDITED OUT SPOILER!!]

    Any­way, I have real­ly enjoyed the­se nov­els. I am from Alaba­ma and can feel and relate to the slang and cir­cum­stance you put into the­se nov­els! Will you be adding to this col­lec­tion in the future? I sure hope so! I know Abe should be a detec­tive!

  2. Thank you very much! Right now, my focus is on oth­er work, but I would love to once again go back to Alv­in. And yes, the notes I have for where the series is head­ed if I do con­tin­ue out­line a book where Abe becomes a detec­tive and Car­ry gets mar­ried and has a baby. i had to edit your com­ment because it con­tained a huge spoil­er, but you obvi­ous­ly know some­thing about this idea from read­ing STICKS AND STONES 🙂 Thank you again for your nice words.
