Cohesion Press are a relatively new Australian publisher (a couple of years old now) who are already doing absolutely amazing things. They put out books of fantastic quality, packed to the gills with amazing stories from talented authors. And somehow I’ve managed to get myself included among that stellar company in two new releases out now. One is the next in their line of military horror anthologies, known as the SNAFU series. SNAFU is a military acronym for Situation Normal, All Fucked Up. The latest in the series is SNAFU: Survival of the Fittest (edited by Geoff Brown and A J Spedding), and it includes my novelette, “In Vaulted Halls Entombed”. The other volume out for pre-order now is an anthology of horror stories following the very open theme of Blurring The Line (edited by Marty Young), which is also the anthology’s title. And that one includes my story, “How Father Bryant Saw The Light”.

SNAFU: Survival of the Fittest is out now in print and ebook, including limited edition hardback. Blurring The Line is available for ebook pre-order now and will ship in a few weeks. Print will follow very close behind. Both books have an amazing line-up of contributors, which you can find below. It’s particularly humbling for me to be a in a book with Tom Piccirilli, who died this year after a long war with cancer. Tom is an incredible writer and you really should check out his work. To be in a book with him is a real honour.

Everything you need to know about SNAFU: Survival of the Fittest, including links to buy it, you can find here.

Everything you need to know about Blurring The Line, you can find here – and you can pre-order that on Kindle here. Print, including limited edition hardback, will be available very soon. Watch the Cohesion Press website for that stuff. Keep an eye on my Facebook page or Twitter too, as I’ll post links to all that stuff as it becomes available.

And incidentally, how fucking awesome are both those covers below? I love them. Full Table of Contents for each book follows.
