2009 has been pretty good for me, publishing wise. First there was “The Cutting Room” reprinted in Australian Dark Fantasy & Horror Volume Three (pictured on the right), then “Chasing Jormungand” in ASIM and co-editing Midnight Echo #2 (pictured left).
Now, afte three years of development, Shards is finally real!
“With Shards, author Shane Jiraiya Cummings and artist Andrew J. McKiernan take us on a guided tour of the darkest backroads of the imagination. It is wonderfully moody and creepy.”
– Jonathan Maberry, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Patient Zero.
“Shane Jiraiya Cummings with Shards shows he is not only a master of the flash fiction style of writing but has pretty much written the definitive statement on how it should work. The collection is a strong statement on the validity of an internet-driven writing style and is a must have for any collector of Australian Dark Fiction.”
– Jeff Ritchie, ScaryMinds
“Cummings’ work possesses a Stephen King-like quality, creating rich and colourful characters in a handful of words… Well worth the read.”
– Mark Smith-Briggs, HorrorScope
