I’m excited to announce that Monsters, Movies, & Mayhem won the 2021 Colorado Book Award for Best Anthology!
This anthology came out last summer and contains my short story, “Hyde Park.” It’s about a young writer-director who’s keeping a monstrous secret about his overnight Hollywood success.
This is such an amazing anthology full of delightful stories, the recognition is definitely well-deserved. It contains twenty-three stories celebrating monsters and the movies from authors Jonathan Maberry, Rick Wilber, Brendan Mallory, Ryan F. Healey, Hailey Piper, Julie Frost, Karina Fabian, Charles Maclay, Jesse Sprague, Kevin Pettway, Luciano Marano, Linda Adams, Cindy Hung, David Boop, Phyllis Irene Radford, Andrew Hearn, B.D. Prince, David Gerrold, Ben Monroe, Shannon Fox, Steve Rasnic Tem, Fran Wilde, and Sam Knight.
This anthology was produced by a cohort of Publishing MA students from Western Colorado University. Published by WordFire Press, it was edited by Kevin J. Anderson.
Congratulations to everyone involved in this fantastic project!

About Monsters, Movies, & Mayhem:
Lights! Camera! Monsters?
Sometimes you go to the movies. And sometimes, the movies—and their monsters—come to you. At any moment, without notice, monsters once relegated to the screen become a reality. Aliens and demons, dragons and ghosts, werewolves, vampires, zombies, and seemingly ordinary people who are just plain evil.
Join award-winning authors Jonathan Maberry, Fran Wilde, David Gerrold, Rick Wilber and others for 23 all-new tales of haunted theaters, video gods, formidable demons, alien pizza, and delirious actors. Each story takes you to the silver screen with monstrous results.
Funny or grim, unsettling or cozy… You’ll laugh! You’ll sigh! You’ll scream!
Grab popcorn—and good running shoes—and enjoy the show.
