This year hasn’t seen much action on the novel front, though I’m hoping that’ll change next year. I have had two very different short stories published, firstly ‘Liberty Bird’ (a space opera inspired by a trip to the Lake District – no really) appeared in Newcon Press’s Now We Are Ten anthology, while ‘A Dormitory Haunting’ (a mystery set in a Victorian girls’ school) appeared in Associates of Sherlock Holmes, published by Titan books.
In a month’s time, Tower of Chaos press will be putting out an publication close to my heart. One Step Beyond is an anthology named after the writers’ group I’ve been part of for – eek! – nearly two decades now, featuring stories from members of that group, including yours truly. All profits from the anthology will go to charity. It’s due out on November 17th and I’ll post more details here in due course. Before that, may I also commend to you Sons of Earth, a collection of by Vaughan Stanger, one of the group’s most widely-published short story writers.
