I’m delighted to say I have a new, long, long story coming out in Interzone #287 (May-June, 2020). If you thought your childhood was strange… this could make you think again.
We’re living through difficult times, so don’t look for this in shops (assuming they’re open). There’s an online shop here: https://shop.ttapress.com/ with lots of exciting stuff. Take a look!
It’s been a good year for me in terms of short fiction (or “shirt fiction” as I recently misspelled it for an author bio). “Watching”, which originally appeared in Black Static, has been selected for Ellen Datlow’s Best Horror of the Year Vol 12, due out in early autumn. There’s another piece due in a prestigious Lovecraft-themed anthology from PS Publishing, edited by Darrell Schweitzer (look for news at https://www.pspublishing.co.uk/). Then, yesterday, I sold a story to the venerable Space and Time magazine here in the US (http://spaceandtime.net/). So that was nice.
Writing has its lean years, but it’s great when things hits home. A big thanks to all the editors involved, and I hope readers find something to entertain and amuse them. Cheers, everyone!
PS. Here’s the cover of Space and Time #137, now available at https://spaceandtime.net/. I’ve only seen an on-line PDF so far, which is not my preferred method of reading, but what I’ve seen looks great, and I loved the illustration for my story, “Dogs of Mars”.
In addition, since writing the above, I’ve sold another piece to Interzone — “Cryptozoology”, a journey through some of the weirder backwaters of the USA. Writers are notoriously bad judges of their own work, but I really think this is one of the best stories I’ve ever written. And again, a big thanks to the editors, designers, artists and writers who make these magazines special — and the readers, without whom none of them would exist at all.
