After a relatively quiet 2004, Mark Anthony Brennan has several things in the works for 2005. His short story “Jacob: A Winter’s Tale from Copping Moors” will be featured in the April issue of Writers Post Journal. Sometime in 2005, “Humpback IV” will appear in the magazine Here & Now and “Freezer Burn” will appear in the anthology Monsters Ink. Later this year “der Wahrsager” and “Drot Detail” are scheduled for issues of Tales of the Talisman. Finally, Mark’s first collection of short stories, Shelter from the Storm, and other speculative tales, is due out before summer.
