Absence

Short Story

Dissections: The Journal of Contemporary Horror selected my short-story Absence to appear in their 10th edition. Dissections is a peer-review online journal edited by Gina Wisker and Michelle Bernard and counts three times Bram Stoker award winner Michael A. Arnzen among its editorial board. Absence is an urban horror set in the back streets of Tokyo.
