Q: When is a Horror Writer Not a Horror Writer?

Cover Art - Chris Lenhart
A: When he doesn't know he's written a horror story.

My latest story, The Year We Killed the People Who Pretend to be Statues has been published as a horror story at AntipodeanSF. I guess I didn't think about it at the time of writing, but it doesn't really fit into the sci fi category. There's no science in there at all.

If I was going to classify it myself, I think I'd call it a humorous alternate reality story - but I guess I won't argue. I can now claim to have written a horror story! Henceforth I am a sci fi AND horror writer. Now I just need to write a fantasy story and claim the trifecta!

Oh! Oh! And you can hear me read it here on the AntiSF Radio Show 160 Beta.
