“Alexandra Leaving” in MAMMOTH BOOK OF CTHULHU


My story, “Alexandra Leaving”, appears for the first time in THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF CTHULHU (Running Press, 2016), edited by Paula Guran. The story involves a trip across the country by a young couple, and where they end up is in familiar territory—a place where loss and abandonment come to roost. Inspiration for the story came from a short piece I’d written for another project, but where that one went was so far removed from where it started that I was able to rework its origins into this story.
