Well, it’s been nearly a year since I’ve posted here, so I thought I should have a little update. So hi, and sorry, and yeah, it’s been an uneventful year publication-wise. I’ve mostly been working on novels, none of which are in the pipeline for actual publication, but even so, I’ve still had a couple of little pings in the short story field to make sure I’m not completely forgotten!
Firstly, earlier this year, my story “Boxing Day” was published in At The Edge, a great collection of Australian and New Zealand speculative fiction. It’s a fantastic book, and I’m really very fond of the story I have in it, so if you get a chance, check it out.
Secondly, my story “Stillegeist”, originally published in Midnight Echo Issue #10, is being reprinted in a Best Of Midnight Echo anthology. Dead of Night should be available later this year as an ebook, with print to follow. So keep your eyes peeled.
And thirdly, and perhaps most excitingly, my story “The Circle Line” has been picked up for the upcoming anthology Between the Tracks, a train-themed horror anthology already featuring such great writers (and friends) as Alan Baxter, Dan Rabarts and Lee Murray, along with fresh-faced newcomers like Christopher Golden, Ramsay Campbell and Clive Barker. I’m sure they’ll do great things one day. *blink*
Interestingly, all three of these tales are ghost stories, in one form or another. Okay, perhaps not that interestingly!
Aaaaaand… that’ll do. Hopefully I’ll post again before the same time next year, but, well, depending on who wins the US Presidential Election in a few days, I’ll either see you next time, or may the odds be ever in your favour.
