Many of my short stories are bundled into collections.

Back in the day, friends used to call me Daggy. So let me welcome you now

The Arm of Darkness Collection


Two brothers stumble upon a website so entrancing that it marks them for death. A murderous drifter wanders into the wrong bar on a snowy night. A lovesick executive rents a hideous creature bred to nibble his cares away. 

They and others become victims of a mysterious stranger who lives in these mountains. His hand is fashioned from the oldest darkness man has ever known—the night sky. He is a trickster, a prankster, a demonic being who desires only to wreak casual violence on every person he meets. He’s about to offer you a bargain. Don’t trust him.

Arm of Darkness contains six short stories of horror. Three of those stories (shown below) are also sold separately.
