I just clicked send on my reply to the editorial notes for “Heat Death,” my next Skin Kadash story. It will be in the July/August 2015 issue of Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine, on sale at the end of May.

Set in 1971, “Heat Death” sees Skin nearly two decades before he would be a homicide detective, even before he’s a cop. As a last hurrah before they leave for Army basic training, Skin and his longtime friend Tommy head to a cabin in the Canadian wilderness for a weekend of partying and hell-raising, only to see things take a violent turn. This is your chance to check out Skin in his larval form, to see a moment when the seeds of the man he would become were planted.
