    I support Brian James Freeman and Jason Sechrest through Patreon and feel I get value from both of them. Both have options starting as low as $1.00 a month so hopefully you can find something that gives you value within your budget.

    I just picked up the PS Pub WALKING WITH GHOSTS collection. Was hoping to pick up a signed/numbered/slipcased edition, but had to settle for the trade. Really looking forward to starting it.
    Hope you enjoy it. I really like Mr. Freeman's writing. His tales feel very personal to me.

    I agree...I’ve read at least a half-dozen of his stories in various anthos and publications, and each one has been great; this’ll be my first collection of his work.

    Received my box a few days ago and I am very pleased with the content. Very intrigued with the second and third parts on Patreon Stories II.

    That does not come across as a young writer finding his voice. I will have to go back and re-read Darkness Whispers again. I think it will give me a whole new perspective on that story.

    Speaking of a young writer finding his voice. I read the final three stories in Patreon Stories Volume Two today and you sell yourself short. They are not “embarrassingly bad” as you put it. While they will not be taking home any Stoker awards they were fun reads and I really enjoyed Bus Trip. The only point you embarrassed yourself was you youthful exuberance for Meatloaf. We all have those skeletons in our closets, I was a Kiss fan myself.

    So finished reading Patreon Stories Volume Two last night. I expected a collection of Brian's fiction that I had already read. Boy did he over deliver! This book is in three sections. Short stories, poetry and some early stories. I actually enjoyed the early work and you can see the writer Brian has become in them. Poetry at its finest is a short story written in a poetic cadence. Brian generally delivers on that. I really expected the short stories to be repeats of things I have already read, as I have already read all his CD collections. Brian had other ideas and there are some stories here that are new to me and several really packed a punch. I think I have said this before but I will repeat myself. Brian's writing reminds me a lot of the writing of Stewart O'nan. That is a big complement. If you are expecting all out horror you will not get what you want. Much of Brian's stories are not horror at all, not to say there is not some mixed in. Brian's stories at their heart are about the human condition. I have said before that reading Stewart O'nan is like looking through a window at people living their lives. Many of these stories gave me the same feeling.

    A side note for Brian. In your story notes of The Last Beautiful Day you mention that it was inspired by an actual news story. This happened with my sister and I can tell you that those days are imprinted in my psyche and have been part of shaping who I am as a man. The story brought a flood of emotions, in part because life is throwing a lot at me right now, but not in a bad way.

    This book contained stories that are exactly what I needed wright now and I thank you for that!
