My story “Obelisk” is due out this month

logomars1I’ve heard from JayHenge Publishing’s hard working editior, Jessica Augustsson, that my short story Obelisk is due to be published very shortly in an anthology titled Phantasmical Contraptions & Other Errors.

This is a steampunk themed anthology and looks to have an exciting and diverse line-up (more on that soon).

The exact date for publication is yet to be confirmed but it should certainly be in October (and of course I will be posting as soon as I hear myself).

I won’t give any spoilers but my own story is set on colonial Mars during the Victorian era and… well… wait and find out…

big_thumb_8a208215fcb0f2e7188cbc52d2190531

I’m delighted to be able to gloat that I had two more short stories accepted (by different publishers) yesterday.

One is a Steampunk adventure set on a recently colonised Mars during a divergent-history Victorian period. It features a hint of romance and some ancient, dark, Lovecraftian menace…

The other is a psychological horror mystery. It is a tale of hypnotism, dreams, past-lives, maddness, reincarnation, stories-hidden-within-stories…. and the most infamous serial 7013401819_319cb49abe_bkiller. Ever.

I will of course be waffling on about these and other forthcoming stories endlessly… so expect more details soon.

The Scales Of Injustice

anglerI’m delighted to be able to announce that I have a new short story coming out in early 2017.

The Scales of Injustice – February 2017

Short Story, 5000 words.

Cthulhu Mythos / Crime / Mystery.

Fossil Lake IV

Coming in 2017 … SHARKASAURUS!

Anticipated Release Date: February 2017 in print and ebook.

Once again, the title should tell you all you need to know for the theme. Sharks and/or dinosaurs! We expect teeth. Lots and lots of teeth. Beyond that, pretty much anything goes. Fighting each other? Chomping teenagers on spring break? Teaming up buddy-cop-movie-style and learning to respect one another’s differences? The doomed romance of star-crossed lovers? Time travel? Monstrous hybrids? Magical musical singing and dancing? Bring it!

A quick round-up…

I currently have 10 short-stories with publishers (waiting for decisions on incussion/rejection from anthologies) plus two pitches for novellas.

SHERLOCK-HOLMES_2671973bMy latest completed story is a supernaturally-themed Sherlock Holmes tale.

Cthulhu_and_R'lyehBefore that was a modern Cthulhu-mythos murder-mystery.

As I’m currently writing three other stories I’d beter get back to work soon…
