Publisher's Weekly recently reviewed Dark Screams Volume 5, the fifth volume in the Random House/Cemetery Dance anthology series and gave Kealan's story a very kind mention:
"Freeman and Chizmar’s fifth horror anthology runs the gamut from throwback horror to lyrical and heartbreaking tales… The crown jewel is Kealan Patrick Burke’s luminous ‘The Land of Sunshine,’ about a husband guilty of infidelity who gives the ultimate gift to win his wife’s forgiveness. Another standout is Mick Garris’s gonzo ‘Everything You’ve Always Wanted,’ a gory, darkly funny tale about a has-been movie director who meets the woman of his dreams at a horror convention, with disastrous results… Loosely tied together with themes of broken hearts and wayward love, this collection will satisfy most horror fans."
The book will be released just in time for Halloween, but you can preorder it here.
