Legends of the Monster Hunter


Use Enough Gun: Legends of the Monster Hunter III from Pill Hill Press will be available soon. Editor Miles Boothe has compiled this third anthology of monster hunting goodness with a twist. All the stories in this edition chronicle those unfortunate hunts where everything didn't go as planned. The good guys don't always win, the monsters don't always lose, and the hunters aren't always the only ones doing the hunting. 

My story, "House Hunters," is a stand-alone sequel to another story, "Hunted House," which Pill Hill published in June 2010 in their Haunted anthology. From the moment I put down the metaphorical pen from "Hunted House," I'd been itching to pull those characters back into a sequel and Use Enough Gun was the perfect opportunity to take a shot. My thanks to Mr. Boothe for choosing "House Hunters." I'm sure there were lots of great stories to chose from and I'm honored mine made the cut.

I don't have a cover for Use Enough Gun to post, but I imagine Mr. Boothe will stick with the same look, which I like quite a lot.

Now with the second House Hunters story complete, I can't help but feel a third story coming on. Yep.  Working title: "2BR/2BA, Hell of a View."

At the end of this post, I'll list the tables of contents follow for all three volumes, though the names may not be listed as they appear in print. Some great stories in these books, ladies and gentlemen. I hope you have the opportunity and the inclination to give them all a try. A word of warning, though. These are not how-to books. If you do encounter actual monsters, get the hell out and call the professionals. And for God's sake, never, ever ask, "What could possibly go wrong?"
