Story in Campus Chills anthology

Campus Chills anthology coverA few months ago, friend and fellow writer, Mark Leslie (aka Mark Lefebvre) invited me to submit a story for an anthology that he was editing called Campus Chills. The anthology is a joint effort by McMaster University, the University of Alberta, Dalhousie University, and my own alma mater, the University of Waterloo. The anthology will contain scary stories set on Canadian university campuses, but the anthology will have a further twist, beyond what you'll find in the stories.

Three of the four universities (UA, UW, McMaster) has an Espresso Book Machine in their respective bookstores, and the anthology will be initially printed on the EBM's and available only in these bookstores. Here's the full lineup of authors and stories, and I'm thrilled to be included with this array of Canadian talent.

My story, "Radio Nowhere" (yes, I continue my recent Springsteen title trend), is more weird than scary, but I think you'll like it. It features UW's infamous steam tunnels, a duck, some weird radio, and large amounts of marijuana. Yes, you're right – it's a love story. Kind of obvious, really.

Four joint launch events for the book will be taking place on the evening of October 22 on each of the four campuses. If you're nearby to one of these campuses, I hope that you'll be able to drop in and attend.
