Tell us about your recent publications/projects?

Most recently I had a small collection of stories released by Things in the Well Publications, called This Sublime Darkness and Other Dark Stories. Just this week I also self-published a chapbook called Bleak Precision which readers can buy from me directly for $5 by contacting me at greg@darkscrybe.com

2. What has been the best publishing experience of your career so far?

Well in the 10+ years I’ve been a horror author and artist I’ve published many books and stories and met and worked with countless fantastic people both in and outside the genre. I’ve also been twice nominated for Bram Stoker Awards, so I guess I must have some idea of what I’m doing 🙂

3. Which recent Australian/NZ work would you recommend to international fans interested in expanding their Antipodean spec fic knowledge?

Anything by New Zealand author, Lee Murray or Aussie author Kaaron Warren – they’re both at the very top of their game.
