Editorial Credits

I have co-edited three themed anthologies with James Everington, who is a fantastic author in his own right. We have been very fortunate to be able to work with some wonderful writers, who have contributed stories of incredible quality. We have also worked with some fantastic small presses that have worked hard to promote the books and produce a high-quality product for our readers.

The Hyde Hotel

All the stories in The Hyde Hotel are set in the titular hotel, a place that can be simultaneously dingy or grand, premium or bargain basement. But no matter how it appears, the Hyde Hotel holds ghosts and mysteries for every resident.
