I have had the distinct honor of having a story chosen to appear in the final issue of Necrotic Tissue. As you can imagine, this is a bittersweet joy. This magazine has had an amazing run, led by editor R. Scott McCoy (no relation to me), who, through it, has helped to advance the horror industry as a whole.
My story, “Dr. Heckle and Mr. Jive,” takes a look at an aging stand-up comedian, down on his luck, who will do anything to kick-start his career, inspire applause, and earn the love of both his son and his co-star.
