Greetings from the Ethereal Plane,

David Turton started his writing career in 2017 and, within a few months, racked up quite a few impressive publications in a short time, including three stories published with Gehenna & Hinnom Books: “Length” in the Year’s Best Body Horror 2017 Anthologyand “Bonjour, Stevie” in Hinnom Magazine Issue 003, and “The Scrap Metal Man” in the Year’s Best Transhuman SF 2017 Anthology.
