Market News: The Cutpurse From Mulberry Bend to be published in The Best of Penny Dread Tales

I am chuffed to have my steampunk piece, 'The Cutpurse From Mulberry Bend' – which was first published in Penny Dread Tales III: In Darkness Clockwork Shine – accepted for The Best of Penny Dread Tales. This anthology grabs the best steampunk stories from four volumes of Penny Dread Tales, which is a nice compliment. I believe this new anthology will be released in a few months, and will be published by Wordfire Press, via Runewright, and edited by Christopher Ficco.

Market News: ‘The Cutpurse From Mulberry Bend’ published in Penny Dread Tales III

Very very pleased to have my dark steampunk tale, 'The Cutpurse From Mulberry Bend' published in Penny Dread Tales Volume III: In Darkness Clockwork Shine.

I have published in each volume, and intend to work hard to continue to contribute to following volumes, all expertly edited by Christopher Ficco. This was a fun project, like all previous exercises.

The editor has also chosen to revamp the covers of volumes 1 and 2, in order to create a consistent continuum of design for the series – a great move. I have presented all three below.

Published Short Story: The Bond, in Penny Dread Tales: Gears, Coils, Aether & Steam (Volume 1)

Happy to say that my Steampunk short story, The Bond, has been published in Runewright’s new anthology, Penny Dread Tales: Gears, Coils, Aether & Steam (Volume 1), edited by Christopher Ficco, and excellent cover by Laura Givens.

This was a most satisfying short to write, and also was picked up blindingly fast, which is much appreciated. Buy it! Enjoy it!
