What a gorgeous cover! Emerging from the swamp next week … includes my story, Some Corner of a Dorset Field that is Forever Arabia.
My 25th published story, “The murder of Father Grigori Yefimovich Rasputin considered as the single men’s Olympics Luge final“, has just gone live at Sein und Werden. I first read “The assassination of John Fitzgerald Kennedy considered as a downhill motor race” by JG Ballard around 1979 / 1980, in one of the best sf […]

I have just signed and returned the contract for my horror story, The Bride of the Blob, to be published in Andromeda Spaceways Magazine, so yay me! and yay ASM! and yay story! I had a lot of fun writing this story, which scoots around in the world of the late 60s and the terrain […]
