The Bone Worms - Expanded and Updated Edition!
by Keith Minnion

Philadelphia, 1983 – Who is walking the streets of this city, committing crazed, inhuman acts only on victims with very particular things in common? Is it a serial killer, or is the monster stalking the cobbled streets of this ancient city something else, something even older, more insane, more unspeakable than the homicide detective charged with solving the murders can possibly imagine? After all, who could imagine the Bone Worms?
In this updated and expanded novel, Keith Minnion re-enters the world first imagined in his story “Up In The Boneyard” from Shivers IV, expanding and extrapolating the original idea to encompass a horror that stretches across hundreds of years and innumerable acts of depravity and death, to land finally in the IN basket of Detective Sergeant Francis Lomax, and in the growing fears of a city populace with no idea of the nightmare that hunts them.

Keith Minnion sold his first short story to Asimov’s SF Adventure Magazine in 1979. He subsequently sold over two dozen stories, a novella, two novelettes, an art book of his best published illustrations, three story collections, and two novels. Keith was a book designer and illustrator from the early 1990s to the 2010s, and also did extensive graphic design work for the Department of Defense. He was a former schoolteacher, DOD project manager, GPO Printing Contract Specialist, and officer in the U.S. Navy. He retired to the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, pursuing woodworking, painting, and fiction writing.
