“The Weight of One” – Black Hare Press’ anthology Grimdark

Contracts are signed, so time to start plugging this. @BlackHarePress has accepted my short story, “The Weight of One,” for inclusion in their upcoming Grimdark anthology. This should be a great one, and I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy!

“Red Sands at Morning” – Dark Horses

A shout out to Dark Horses magazine, who have accepted my short story, “Red Sands at Morning.” A bit of a taste:

            Amid the buoys, bits of fishing nets, and jagged tree limbs sat a red sandcastle. Only, not a sandcastle, not really. It certainly had the FEEL of a castle, with walls and swooping turrets and exposed angles that looked defensive in nature. But it was rougher, wilder, and should have been pulverized in the storm had it been built before it. And it certainly wasn’t new; there was no one else in sight.

            “Can we see that sand, Daddy? Please please please…” Alan set the girls on a sturdy tree trunk and made his way through the debris field to the red castle. The closer he got to it, the more sinister it became, with some of the spires topping the thing looking almost razor sharp. It also appeared to have washed in with the rest of the storm junk. As he approached it from the ocean side, there was a clear line between the off-white of the beach sand the solid red of the castle.

Winter Hiking: Lone Oak Trail, Woodsville, NH

Location: Woodsville, New Hampshire

Date: 2/20/22, 2/24/22

Tucked away just north of Woodsville is the Lone Oak Trail, maintained by the Upper Valley Land Trust. While short, this moderate trail features a bit of elevation, making it steep in places (particularly as you reach the summit). It’s definitely worth the effort, though, as you can see from the view. I had a crampon blow out on this one, so actually had to make a couple of runs at it before getting to the top.

Hubbard Park, Montpelier, Vermont 02/21/22

Location: Montpelier, Vermont

Date: 02/21/22

Just north of the statehouse in Montpelier, Hubbard Park is a 194-acre park packed with hiking trails, shelters, fire places, and a large stone tower at its highest point. There are multiple parking areas and access points; we parked on Parkway Street and hiked up, which was under two miles in and back, with some elevation. There is nothing too strenuous here, but it is a great place to do some light hiking, although I imagine it probably is pretty well-traveled at times.
