“The Priest Hunter” Short Story Now Available

My short story, The Priest Hunter is now available in the Kobo edition of  the Fiction River: Past Crime anthology.  The story is only available in the expanded edition from Kobo, so if you’d like to read the story you’ll need to get it from Kobo. Here’s the link for US customers:


Special thanks to Mark Leslie Lefebrve and all the other folks at Kobo, and to all the folks at WMG Publishing who made this special edition possible.

And double special thanks to Hugo award winning author and Hugo award winning editor Kristine Kathryn Rusch for her kind words in the introduction to this story:

Patrick is one of the best new writers to emerge in this decade.

It is difficult to express how much that single sentence means to me, especially coming from Kristine Kathyrn Rusch.  Kris Rusch is not only one of the most brilliant writers working today in multiple genres, and a legendary editor, but one of the most decent people I’ve ever had the pleasure to know. That she likes my work in general, and this story in particular, is a great honor.

The thing I like best about this Fiction River series is all the other great stories I’ve had the pleasure to read. There are stories available in this edition that are only available through Kobo. (One set in England, two set in Ireland, plus Laura Ware’s gripping “Choices”, a story set in my adoptive home state’s all-too-recent past.)

Check it out.
