Coming soon, The final hypotheses of Professor G. [UPDATE: available now, click on the link.)

Professor G has had walk on roles in some of my previous stories: My Life as a Lizard, The Boulevardier, and Mr Cranky. He discovers that even in the tiny universe of his own story, he is not the most important person. Worse, there may be others off-stage, impatient for him to depart.

More details soon.

… you know you want to!

Christmas is coming, as I can tell from the 4.30pm sunset. O Southern Hemisphere, I miss you and your heatwave Christmas! A hot roast lunch with a side of cold prawns. Hot Christmas pudding, followed by pavlova with chilled fruit and cream. Everyone knows Jesus wasn’t born in winter …

I digress. If you are so interested, the following of my tales are available for your (free) reading pleasure. In the words of my father, don’t say I never give you anything. Just click on the titles to be transported to a winter wonderland (possibly of hell and suffering, but a wonderland nonetheless). All this by way of prelude to a new story being published in the next few days.

My Honourable Lizard

In Uncategorized on January 12, 2015 at 6:32 am

In her list of year’s best short fiction in her December Clavis Aurea column in Apex magazine, Charlotte Ashley gives an honourable mention to my story, ‘My Life as a Lizard‘. I am grateful to Ms Ashley for her kindness, and for her original review, and of course to the folk at Crossed Genres magazine who published the story. I will not pretend that a little positive reinforcement is not a fun thing. Thank you.

Review of “My Life as a Lizard”

There is a generous review of “My Life as a Lizard“, at Apex. Reading the review, I had a moment of “yeah, that’s what I meant,” and I am very grateful that someone read the story and took the time to be so thoughtful and articulate about it. Made my day.

“My Life as a Lizard” published

In publications on March 1, 2014 at 7:27 pm

Crossed Genres Magazine have very kindly included my story, My Life as a Lizard, in their latest edition, which is very exciting for me. If you are interested, click on the link to the story, which is also included on their website. Each month they have a New Author Spotlight, which is a short interview with a writer making their first professional level sale (based on the current SFWA pro rate level of 5c a word). This month the interview is with yours truly. If you would like to see me attempt to sound profound about something which I wrote because it entertained me, the link to that is here as well.

I hope that you enjoy my story.
