I am very happy to announce that a short story I wrote is being included in an exciting new anthology published by Western Legends Press.
The Grimorium Verum is a collection of 26 short stories in the dark fiction and horror genres, edited and compiled by Dean M. Drinkel. The original Grimorium Verum, or ‘The Grimoire of Truth‘, was an 18th century textbook of magic attributed to Alibeck the Egyptian and coveted by ‘The Great Beast’ Aleister Crowley for use in his Magick ceremonies. Taking this inspiration, twenty-six dark fiction authors from around the world each take a letter and use their unique voices to weave magical stories of horror and the fantastic.
The Grimorium Verum is the third instalment to Dean M Drinkel’s Tres Librorum Prohibitorum series. The story I contributed is called ‘Glana’s Basket’, and it is a dark fairytale-style fable about a young girl overthrowing a repressive regime in a strange, imaginary world.
Authors include: Christopher Beck, Adrian Chamberlin, Mike Chinn, Lily Childs, Anthony Cowin, Raven Dane, Chris Dougherty, Tim Dry, Jan Edwards, John Gilbert, D.T. Griffith, Amberle L. Husbands, Lisa Jenkins, Emile-Louis Tomas Jouvet, Amelia Mangan, Tracie McBride, Justin Miles, Christine Morgan, Martin Roberts, Dan Russell, Sylvia Shults, Phil Sloman, Andrew Taylor, Tej Turner, Mark West, and Barbie Wilde.
