Hell's Garden Anthology, featuring Ten Minutes Till Deadtime

My short story, "Ten Minutes Till Deadtime", has emerged from the shadows and can now be read in Hell's Garden: Tales of Mad, Bad and Ghostly Gardeners. Edited by April Grey of Damnation Books, this anthology is for sale on Amazon and Smashwordsand will later be published in paperback.

Here's the blurb:

Hell's Garden: Mad, Bad and Ghostly Gardeners

Six talented writers explore the various paths Evil can take when in Hell's Garden. 

The word garden evokes the image of a place of peace and moderation--the opposite of discord. A gardener decides what plants to cultivate and what is a weed to be destroyed. 
But what if the gardeners themselves run amok? 
Both "Gunda's Gnomes" and "When the Devil Came to Hell's Kitchen" ask what to do with bullies in community gardens. 
In "The Orchid" a young woman discovers a new way to look at weeding. 
While in "Round and Round the Garden" a girl plays with her friend with disastrous results--our Bad Gardeners. 
In "Ten Minutes Till Deadtime" mysterious messages draw a man to his back yard. 
Finally, in "Compost" a family is threatened by a specter in their family vegetable plot. 
Featuring tales by Rayne Hall, Heather Holland Wheaton, Jonathan Broughton, Mark Cassell, Eric Dimbleby and Jeff Hargett. Edited by April Grey. These six dark and fantastic tales explore the various paths evil can take when in Hell's Garden.
