Welcome Kittens to another issue of Black Cat Chronicles where truth is scarier than fiction. In this third issue: Black Cat Chronicles: Invasion Antarctica, we'll explore the deep mysteries in the coldest part of the world, Antarctica. Not only is Antarctica home to the some of the most bizarre creatures on the planet, it also boasts blood waterfalls and under ice volcanoes. But the natural wonders of the continent do not compare to the strange secret military operations conducted by the Nazis, United States and Britain just before, during and after World War II. Why would military resources, already stretched so thin, carry out expensive and dangerous expeditions to the most inhospitable location on the planet? What were they after and what, if anything, did they uncover? Join us fearless reader, as the Black Cat narrates this strange and unexpected tail that is truly scarier than fiction.
I am excited to announce that my essay, A Girl, Her Dad and a Cemetery will be included in the Death’s Garden Revisited anthology edited by Loren Rhoads and published by Automatism Press. It’s a story about a day I took my dad out to take photos at the beautiful Mountain View Cemetery in Oakland, California. The anthology is filled with stories about cemeteries from all over the world. There are forty different contributors ranging from horror writers to anthropologists, to ghost hunters, historians and more. Some of the names include: A. M. Muffaz, Angela Yuriko Smith, Christine Sutton, Paul Stansfield, Rain Graves, Carole Tyrrell, Erika Mailman and many more.
The book will contain full color photos and is available in hardcover and paperback.
