Borderlands 6

This non-themed anthology of horror features never-before-published works by: M. Louis Dixon, John McIlveen, Jack Ketchum, Rebecca J. Allred, Dan Waters, Michael Bailey, John Boden, Trent Zelazny & Brian Knight, Bob Pastorella, Peter Salomon, Carol Pierson Holding, Steve Rasnic Tem, Darren O. Godfrey, David Annandale, Anya Martin, G. Daniel Gunn & Paul Tremblay, Gordon White, Sean M. Davis, Tim Waggoner, Bradley Michael Zerbe, and Gary A. Braunbeck. Also included, one amazing previously published novelette by David Morrell.

I've a story in the newly released Borderlands 6 anthology alongside the work of some of the heroes & legends of modern horror fiction. Is it a Generation Dead story? Well, there are dead people. And most of the action takes place in the mysterious depths of  Oxoboxo Lake (yes, in the Oxoboxo!). And although I don't mention him in the story at all, Takayuki is watching George gnaw on a deceased opossum just off-camera on page two .Note: this last "fact" is fiction, and as anyone knows a fiction told about fiction de facto becomes fact.

You may have a difficult time finding my story because it is very short and because I used my super secret, non-YA, adult pseudonym: Dan Waters.  Shhh! Don't tell anyone!

Some other clues to help you locate the story: it is called "Sinkers", and it begins on page 41. You won't be able to locate "Sinkers" in Generation Dead Book 4: My Best Friends Are Dead, out from OMZ Press later this summer.

The roster of authors is stellar, as are the stories they've created.  I'm thrilled to be in such company.
