--ABOUT MODERN DREAD--
The project that would eventually become "Modern Dread" was originally conceived as the solution to a problem. As a writer who seeks to be published consistently, I must usually plan my texts according to strictly external guidelines. A marketable story is generally one of two things. It is either quite short, or else it is the length of a complete novel. As I wrote "The Lossy Incident", I realized that I was creating something that couldn’t properly fit into either of these two main categories. This was a recurring issue that I had noticed before with my other projects. The current “territory” for novella and novelette-length stories remains sparse in terms of profitability and audience opportunities. That strikes me as an absolute shame. I reached out to my fellow authors about publishing a collection of longer stories that weren’t quite novels.I was humbled by the amazing response that I got from my peers. It turns out that the practice of writing novelette-style fiction remains alive and well. That fact is now what "Modern Dread" aims to celebrate.
