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.

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.
