Hinnom Magazine Issue 2: An Honorary Lovecraft Issue

I am pleased to announce that my short story “The Nocturne of Manigault” will be featured in Gehenna & Hinnom’s upcoming Hinnom Magazine Issue 2 to be released on August 31, 2017.

Anyhow, more to come as to how you can get your copy of Gehenna & Hinnom’s e-magazine. If your curiosity has been piqued, visit them at the link below:
