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.

Market News: ‘The Past Catching Up’ published in Badlands anthology

I have a good track record with Westerns, be they horror, weird, steampunk, or a strange fusion of two or three. In this case I am pleased to have a weird/horror piece, 'The Past Catching Up'. in Dead Guns Press' anthology, Badlands. It is available in print at the moment, and presumably ebook soon. Come on over and read a quality Western Horror book, by a very good specialist independent publisher.

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.

News: ‘The Crab Woman’ to be published in Our World of Horror anthology

Happy to announce that my short story, 'The Crab Woman', was an early acceptance to the Eldritch Press pro horror anthology, Our World of Horror. The partial TOC will be announced by Eldritch Press in a few days.

Aside from being a pro sale, I am over the moon to see this story getting accepted. It was sold on first submission, which is a nice hit rate, and I had the great pleasure of having Kaaron Warren be my beta reader on this–her time spent on it, and the valuable feedback, was integral to this story, set on in the island nation of  Vanuatu, being as polished as it is. Kaaron is a very generous writer.

News: Black Beacon’s Subtropical Suspense – Great Review

A very nice review on local radio in Brisbane Australia (4ZZZ FM), for Black Beacon's Subtropical Suspense – an anthology of suspense short stories, all set in Brisbane and surrounds.

I was lucky to have my story, 'The Deluge' included in this work, and even luckier to have a mention in the review.

You can hear the review here – at 1hr 27mins approximately.

Great to have this publicity going. The book will be available through online retailers soon.

Market News: “Crazy Mike McCloud” published in Railroad!: Celebration Station

Happy to contribute to Celebration Station this year, particularly its worthy cause. My weird western, 'Crazy Mike McCloud' is a little different for me – while I have written weird westerns before, they were usually well ensconced in the steampunk genre as well – not so this short story. It even has a bit of romance in it.

Enjoy and please contribute to the American Cancer Society, via the site.
