The Blackness Within Cover
I've just received the finished art for the cover for the upcoming Apex Publications anthology The Blackness Within (edited by Gill Ainsworth).  Check it out in the upcoming covers section -----                     

Doorways # 7 (featuring the novella Knock-Knock based on my OPEN horror vignette series)
Just in time for Halloween, Doorways magazine has a special treat.  Critically acclaimed horror authors Gary A. Braunbeck, John Everson and J.F. Gonzalez co-write the novella Knock-Knock.  Each of the authors is writing as one of the characters from the OPEN comic series and together the characters come up with one twisted tale.  Look for it in the Halloween Issue of Doorways (available now!).
