Market News: ‘Brown Eyes’ sold to Bards & Sages Magazine

Pleased to have my dark fantasy short story, ‘Brown Eyes’, sold to Bards and Sages. An unusual piece that starts in the Museum of Antiquities in Cairo, and finishes on Queen’s Bridge over the Yarra in Melbourne. I believe it will be published in July 2018.

Market News: They Can Never Find Out

Double pleasure in this announcement. A story I published in an anthology a fair number of years ago has been picked up by Deadman’s Tome – their March to the Grave war-themed edition. Aside from seeing this story get a new lease on life, it is also great to share the TOC with Deborah Sheldon. This is a Texas publication, but it has two Aussies contributing to it.

Market News: Short Story, The Girl Who Floated To Heaven, published in Disturbed Digest #16

Delighted to have my short story, The Girl Who Floated to Heaven, published in Disturbed Digest #16. This one was hard to sell as it was recent historical in setting, having strong science fiction undertones, and was highly disturbing, covering topics such as domestic violence and suicide. And yet, it was also about unrequited love, and the editor who accepted my piece, stated that he thought it was primarily just that – a romance piece with all the other trappings. First time anyone called any of my pieces ‘romance’.

Regardless, I am over the moon to see this in print – hope you read it.

Maret News: Derelict published in Inner Sins Magazine

Happy to see a home for my short dark fiction piece, Derelict. It is set in the same fictional geography as a story I published in Tico4 years ago, and it was inspired by some thoughts about people who are down and out – what stories do they have? Anyway, glad to see this out and about.

Market News: Old Bones, Young Bones is published in The Refuge Collection

Pleased to have my psychological horror piece, Old Bones, Young Bones published in The Refuge Collection (6.2). It is the second story of mine that got into that great collaberative effort, edited by Steve Dillon.

This story is probably the most disturbing I have written yet, in part because it is inspired, and was partly re-told, from a real conversation I had when I was much younger  – and reality is the most disturbing of all things in this world.

It is currently available as a stand alone ebook, but it will later be incorporated in an anthology. This is the link to the stand alone – support this great cause!

Love the artwork by Will Jaques 🙂

Market News: Gerald’s Memory House is published in The Refuge Collection

Very pleased to have two stories accepted for The Refuge Collection, a long running collaberative venture. Good causes and great company.

The first has been published: Gerald's Memory House – first in a stand alone ebook format, and soon to be added to a print version holding volumes 4 to 6 (this story is in Volume 5).

Market News: ‘An Incident at Prnjavor’ published in The Worlds of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror

I've been looking forward to this. I wrote a particularly tense military horror short story, 'An Incident at Prnjavor', set in the Eastern Front of WWI – a geographical region much less covered than the Western Front in literature. Very proud of it, and was pleased it was picked up by an Australian publisher (Altair Australia, editor Robert N. Stephenson).

The print version will be appearing in a few months, but in the meantime, you can purchase the book for free HERE. Kindle sells it as well, at the minimal price possible. 18 stories from around the world, to share and enjoy.

Pleased to see a home for my heroic fantasy piece, ‘Snatching the Lute’ published. It features the minstrel Leon of Clavellmeadow, a character I created in my Evyntyde universe, and where he discovers he isn’t the lady killer he thought he was.
