Drop Your Shorts, Then Turn Your Head and Scream...

Tired of waiting for the new book? If so, pick up a copy of the new short story collection Malpractice: An Anthology of Bedside Terror, which features a new original short story by yours truly. “The Night Nurse of Cobblestone” is set in a senior healthcare facility and involves some unpleasantness with bedsores and bad bedside manners. “Cobblestone” is dark, allegorical take on the horrors of aging – with a howling good twist!

Published by Stygian Publications, Malpractice features eighteen original short stories and thirteen 100-word pieces of flash fiction revolving around a fictional hospital. From the back cover copy:

Are you scared about going to the doctor?

Maybe you should be.

From the outside, a hospital is a place of safety and recovery, where the injured go to regain their strength to face the world again. Sadly, within the sterile white walls of Bloom Memorial, evil burns through every room. Every lab. Every corridor. The so-called doctors are impersonators. Lab-coated viruses infecting all they touch, they labor toward their own purpose.


Be warned. With 18 short stories and 13 100-word bites from some of the best horror writers, this collection of medical terror will cut you to the bones.

Some early praise for Malpractice: An Anthology of Bedside Terror:

“There are no HMOs where you are going. Malpractice is a gut-wrenching and visceral collection of horror stories that feverishly compounds our worst hospital fears. Although I may never be able to visit a hospital again without my knees rattling, I thoroughly enjoyed these well-crafted tales. Thematically, this anthology is a brilliant concept and ultimately flawlessly executed.” – Tim Deal, Shroud Magazine
