At Fear and Trembling

Good news today!

Two pieces of my flash fiction, Hostel Intent and Hack, have been accepted for publication at Fear and Trembling, an online horror magazine; no word on publication dates yet.

Hostel Intent is a tongue-in-cheek tale of a haunted college dormitory; it introduces Babbu Singh, assistant hostel proctor, and his boss, the Bhagwan Shatrunjay, a holy warrior and the twenty-fifth Teerthankar of the Jain. I like these two and may visit them again.

There is nothing funny, though, about Hack; it's a nasty cautionary about the hazards of townhouse living.

I'll let you know when I get confirmation of appearance dates.
