Imposter Syndrome

October 23, 2017

I have a story forthcoming in an excellent new anthology of horror stories called Imposter Syndrome. Editors James Everington and Dan Howarth have ask the cream of the current British horror writing scene (and also me) for stories of eerie doppelgangers and doubles, clones and imposters, and I’m delighted to be sharing book space with […]

Elasticity: the Best of Elastic Press

May 28, 2017

Really excited about the imminent release of Elasticity: The Best Of Elastic Press, edited by Andrew Hook. For the uninitiated, between 2002 and 2008 Elastic Press kick-started the careers of dozens of indie, genre and slipstream writers by giving them a platform to showcase their short fiction. I still treasure volumes by the likes of […]

The obligatory January thing

January 13, 2016

It seems to have become the custom that in December I do a round up of the year, and in January I follow it up with a plans-and-expectations spiel.

The truth about me and astrology

August 19, 2013

As part of the pre-publicity for their Astrologica anthology, The Alchemy Press are running a series of interviews with the contributors. When it came to asking about my star sign, I’m afraid I couldn’t lie. It’s not that I think astrology is nonsense…no wait, if I’m being honest, it’s exactly that. It’s one of those […]

Sour, sweet

I think I’m okay in announcing that I’ve sold a new story to Chris Kelso and Hal Duncan’s Caledonia Dreamin’ anthology of ‘stories of Scottish descent’. The premise of the anthology is to showcase some of the incredible words available in the lexicon of the Scots language, re-purposing them for a wider and modern audience. […]
