The Monster Behind The Mask

Another book published, another short story in an anthology. The Monster Behind The Mask (from Static Movement Press) is now available at Amazon, or (especially for those in Australia, as it charges no postage fees). It is a book of hidden horrors. Of course, I have yet to read it, but my copy is […]

Interesting Publishing Tale…

CAPTAIN BLIGH SCUTTLES MORDECAI SLATE NOVEL – Blogs – SFReader Forums.   I’ve linked Mr Whalen’s blog as an example of the sort of thing I think authors need to be wary of. For what it’s worth, most of my own recent stuff has been published in small press anthologies. But the attitude of the […]

Novel #14

After the not too good Power came the not too good vs. Yep, vs. Just like that. The title is relevent, though. This was from another idea formed during university study, and in fact I wrote the entire first section one day during a lecture for something. It ended up at 60600-odd words, finished a […]

Novel #13

Two years passed. In this time I went back to university and managed to get a second degree, but it was a compacted degree, meaning we did three years of work in eighteen months. That means most of my writing was assignments and the like. But it also meant I had a lot of ideas […]

Novel #12

The next novel was something of a magnum opus. It took more than a year to write, then another year of rewriting before I was happy with it, finishing finally halfway through 2001. I pretty much worked only on this, with only a few short stories making appearances in this time. Mary clocks in at almost […]

It is a themed anthology, focusing on stalkers and the associated horrors. I have not read it yet, but would encourage everyone to read it. Of course I would – […]

Novel #11

The end of 1998 saw a 66300 word novel appear, Comeback. After Some Other People, it was something of a letdown at the time, but reading it nowadays, it isn’t that awful. As it was, I sent it to 2 publishers and an agent, but never heard from any of them. I think my biggest […]
