The Iron Dead: Free Excerpt

Over at the website, we've posted a free excerpt from "The Iron Dead," an original novella that appears in my new SubPress short story collection, Lesser Demons. As I've mentioned before, "The Iron Dead" is a tribute to the classic pulps -- Weird Tales in particular -- and the kind of characters that were known as "weird heroes" back in the day. And while we don't meet the weird hero of "The Iron Dead" in this excerpt, we've included Kevin Nordstrom's rendering of Chaney, which I'm still digging mightily. Enjoy!
