My Story “The Scales Of Injustice” in “Sharkasaurus!” – Out Soon

I have a short story titled The Scales Of Injustice about to be published in Sharkasaurus! which is Volume IV of the Fossil Lake anthology series. The collection is edited by Christine Morgan and will be published by Sabledrake Publications.

My story is drawn from H. P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos and features a good dose of murder and mayhem.

Exact publication date to be confirmed but essentially as soon as the publisher has okayed the proofs from the printer.

More news soon.

OUT NOW! Phantasmical Contraptions & Other Errors

cover2My short story Obelisk has just been published in the steampunk anthology Phantasmical Contraptions & Other Errors, from JayHenge Publishing.

Phantasmical Contraptions & Other Errors is avaiable in either e-text or paperback.

I won’t give any spoilers but Obelisk is set on a recently colonised Mars during an alternative-history Victorian period.

You can expect tongue-in-cheek humour, lots of nods to Victorian sci-fi, and more than a hint of cosmic horror.

Short Story, 7250 Words

Steampunk, Adventure, Lovecraftian, Victorian Sci-Fi, Horror

Featured in the anthology Phantasmical Contraptions & Other Errors, edited by Jessica Augustsson, published by JayHenge Publiushing.

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…

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.

To be Published in the anthology Fossil Lake (Volume 4), edited by Christine Morgan, published by Sabledrake Enterprises

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…
