grizzletoad1 is well-respected
Just got another 4 star review for The Railroad Man, this one from an actual railroad cop! I am both jazzed and humbled.

My crime-horror micro-thriller “The Second-Worst Day” (75 words) is free to read at Horror in a Hundred. (Scroll down if nec.)

Storyline: Even death won’t bring the end of sorrow.

Strong horror element in this one, so maybe not everyone’s cup of tea. (But I’ve got “fun” summer crime story coming soon, so relief is on the way!)

I had a short piece published by Akashic Books on their website today: http://www.akashicbooks.com/new-anchor-by-iain-ryan/

This is my first published piece of crime writing.
