“BLACKGUARDS: Tales of Assassins, Mercenaries, and Rogues” from Ragnarok Publications has arrived.  My dark fantasy short “The Long Kiss” can be found alongside a mammoth collection of dastardly deeds and wicked ways from an all-star cast of contributing fantasy authors.  I’m sincerely grateful and humbled to be included among them.  Simply put, this has been one incredibly cool project.
