A short story, Completely Cold, ran in issues of Shadowplay and Night Mary in 2005.
Outside of comics, Michael has contributed to several anthologies including The Ice Monster in 2011’s dark fantasy Hunt the Winterlands, and The Murderous Scarecrow in 2013’s The Avenger: Roaring Heart of the Crucible.
