A LAND OF ASH: New Short Story Anthology

Happy to announce that A LAND OF ASH by David Dalglish is now available.  It's a short story anthology that features myself and a whole lot of other talented authors.  It was fun to write a story that was specifically for this collection.  After writing LESSONS, it was nice to get back to my roots and write a simple human drama.

I highly encourage people to check it out.  There are some great stories here.  Lots of talent.  I'm so psyched to be a part of it.  I never thought that I'd be the part of two short story collections, but that day has come and I am humbled.

It's such an honor to be a part of this project.  I hope you all will check it out and enjoy.

The Yellowstone Caldera has erupted once every 600,000 years. We’re 40,000 years overdue.


Lava flows stretch for hundreds of miles. A cloud of ash billows east, burying the Midwest, destroying crops, and falling upon the Pacific Coast like a warm, dead snow. The remnants of the United States flees south as the global temperatures plummet.

Amid this total devastation are stories of families, friends, sons and fathers and wives: the survivors. Within are eleven stories focusing on the human element of such a catastrophe, from an elderly couple gathering to await their death to a father sealing his shelter in hopes of keeping the air breathable for his daughter. Contributing to this collection include many popular and up-and-coming independent authors, including David McAfee, Daniel Arenson, and more.
