Spent the afternoon putting the entirety of the AS THE GOLDEN EMPEROR LIES DYING King In Yellow RPG setting together. You can download it here: this one, I made available for everybody. You can also read a short story based on this setting (“Le Roi Est Mort”) in my chapbook DECISIONS. That one, you’re gonna have to buy.



Don’t forget: I also sell chapbooks!

Four short stories per chapbook, each with original illustrations!

  • Anagnorisis: Four Tales of Transformation. ¬†“The stories share the theme of Anagnorisis (the sudden and dramatic defining of one’s true nature), but do not share a universe. HOLDOUTS speaks to the aftermath of the Vampire Wars; THE HOUSE matches a unsettling location with an unsettling protagonist; OLD LOU examines what it’s like to have a barely-controlled monster in your head; and NOTHING LIKE A GOOD BOOK introduces the occult investigatory team of Cosgrove and Stewart!”
  • Revisionary: Four Tales of the Mythos. “Four tales of the Mythos! In SIMMON’S BOOK, learn why you shouldn’t listen to anything you read. In POLLY WANT, thrill as a human being faces down a terrifying alien deathworld monster. In WICKED WHY, get it through your head that ‘Why’ is always the wrong thing to ask. And in IMPURITIES, discover some of the perils faced by the small businesswoman in a unique business environment.”
  • Decisions: Four Tales of Choices. “Four entertaining stories, spanning genres! See a card sharp play a high-stakes game of bluff and blood in PIGEON! Participate in a final funeral in LE ROI EST MORT! Watch a man battle ruffians and himself in RESCUE FROM CHATEAU D’AL√ČATOIRE! And marvel at the unique fate of a man who learns too much in DEEP IN THE HEART OF SEX FISH!”

Book of the Week: Decisions: Four Tales of Choices.

Writer Moe Lane has warned – or maybe promised? – that Decisions: Four Tales of Choices will be the last self-published fiction of his in 2021. It’s made up of four stories, each illustrated with its own image drawn specifically for the story. Also not entirely horror, unlike his previous two chapbooks. Check it out!
