Story News x 3

So, it's been quite a long time since I've mentioned much about my own writing on here (I can't quite believe The Shelter has been out for nearly eighteen months..!) but all that's about to change...

I'll probably be boring you all stupid talking about this soon, but I'm delighted to reveal that my next collection of short stories, Falling Over, will be out this summer from Infinity Plus. I couldn't be more chuffed - Infinity Plus have put out a lot of books & stories I've loved, so it's a real thrill. 

I won't say anything else at this point - more news & updates about Falling Over nearer the time, I'm sure. (I've added a fancy new mailing list thing to the blog, if you want to be kept super-up-to-date.)

Also, another thrill - Supernatural Tales #23 is out, and it contains my story The Second Wish. I really like this mag (I am a subscriber) so it's genuinely exciting (and surprising!) to have a story accepted for it. The Second Wish is a story about grief, the dead, and memory; it's also a deliberate riff on that old classic The Monkey's Paw by WW Jacobs.

And also (the good news has kept coming recently, which probably means karma's saving up a writing related face-slap for me), I received my contributor copies of Polluto #10 today - it's a really nice looking and well designed magazine, with some great authors in there. You should check it out. It includes a very short piece from me The Men Who Value Everything In Money.

Congrats James. Good to hear the word of Everington is getting the exposure it deserves. I live in hope of something being published in the real world. Great to hear your getting results. Look forward to reading it.
