It’s the season for spooky stories. If that’s your bag, check out the November issue of The Dark magazine where you can enjoy scary tales by Lisa L Hannett, Octavia Cade, L Chan and, I’m delighted to say, me! Some of you might recognise Silk Bones from Secret Language. But if the story is new […]

Really pleased to discover that my short story collection, Secret Language, has been shortlisted for this year’s British Fantasy Award. It has some truly excellent company and whoever wins come the end of September will be a worth winner, I reckon. On the subject of the BFS awards, I’ve been asked to judge the Magazine/Periodical […]

Very, very pleased to announce that I’ve sold a supernatural short story, The Secret Language Of Stamps, to Black Static. One of my undisclosed writing goals for this year was to try and break into their pages, and I’m delighted to have done it so quickly. Black Static is a special magazine for me because its […]

One of my favourite indie mags is the awesome Electric Velocipede. They’ve been publishing great fiction for years (check out this great new story by Aliette de Bodard), and marrying it up with Thom Davidsohn’s icon artwork. In recent years have been going through some changes in terms of the way they do things, and […]

August’s books

September 1, 2011

Fully expected this month’s reading to be curtailed by other activities, but as it turns out I managed a couple of enjoyable (albeit with a slightly higher than usual incidence of author/reader nark) novels and the usual interesting array of shorts. Rule 34  by Charles Stross (Orbit)   You know you’ve read a good thriller […]
