Boy, the good news keeps on rolling! Hunt in the Slaughterhouse, another short story I’ve been struggling to find a home for, has finally been published. It’s the story of an undercover cop investigating a neo-Nazi group. When he gets caught by members of the group, things get crazy!

This was one of my first experiences in writing thriller stories, though near the end it took a slightly slasher-esque twist. Either way, I really liked it, and I wanted to see it published. Unfortunately, a lot of places I submitted to either weren’t interested or never got back to me. But there was some light at the end of the tunnel: I remembered how Horror Zone, the magazine that published Revenge for a Succubus’s Beloved (read here if you haven’t read it yet), had taken a short story that had also struggled to find a home, and published it within a couple of days. I sent them Hunt in the Slaughterhouse two days ago, and they published it this morning. And apparently it’s doing well: sixty-something people have already read it, and four people have given some positive comments on the story.

I’d like to thank Horror Zone for publishing my short story and I wish them success in the future. And if you wish to read Hunt in the Slaughterhouse, follow the link here. I hope you like it and let me know what you think.
