"The Bastard Mummy"

My long short story (or short novella, if you prefer -- it runs about 14,000 words) has been accepted by Mysterical-E magazine. It will be published in the Winter issue, which will be posted in December.

You can read Mysterical-E right here:

I'll post a direct link to the story once it is published.

"The Bastard Mummy" is a Finch and Elias mystery, set in River City. When a mummy goes missing from the Egyptian tour while it is on display at the River City museum, Detectives Finch and Elias are dispatched to try to solve the case. They are in a race against time to figure out whodunit (and howdunit) before the FBI or Insurance investigators arrive on scene...and before the theft causes an international incident. For suspects, they encounter an elitist academic, a scheming director, a wanna-be cop security head, a shady janitor and a sleepy college student...

And that, my faithful friends, is all you get out of me until December...
