21 Of My Favourite Short Stories

You won’t find me doing this very often, but I am actually going to give a list of my favourites of something. The reason I don’t do this very often is that tastes change and as soon as I write my favourite down I’m sure another is going to come along and replace it. I […]

Laziness

When I started doing this I promised myself I wouldn’t go more than 2 weeks without posting something (barring going on holiday or the like). Well, maybe I was a little hasty in that. I have been very slack as of late as I plough my way through my latest attempt at a novel (now […]

Book Review – ‘Dying To Live’

Another month, another anthology. Dying To Live: Stories of the Undead (Diabolic Publications) is exactly what it says on the box – stories of the undead. The brief when I first saw it was simple – ‘Twilight’ is too pussy, let’s have real vampires. And thus this book came out. And, my God, is it […]

Oh, Editor, my Editor

I’ve recently been through an editing process with a new editor who I haven’t worked with before. Through a series of e-mail ‘conversations’ and communications, we turned my story into something that actually deserves to be in the anthology she is putting together. So let’s look at how we get to the point of actually […]

Confusion? -or- What’s a short story?

I recently sent a story off for an anthology. Standard, and, like 60% of the stories I send out, destined for rejection I thought. And, sure enough, after two weeks, back came the e-mail. But the rejection was not the normal “thanks, but you suck” email I tend to get (especially from Australian publishers), it […]

Book review – ‘The Temporal Element’

Some more astute readers have noticed I haven’t posted too many book reviews as of late. There are many reasons for this, but what it boils down to is something has to really capture me for me to review it. That’s not to say they haven’t been good – in at least one case, I […]

Bits And Pieces

Lots to catch up on! First – a new book is available! Woo-hoo! Song Stories: Volume 1 by Wakefield Mahon is a series of short stories in all the spec fic genres, all of them based on various songs. My story – ‘Sugar Shack’ – is apparently the last one in the book, which is something of a […]

Unfortunate News… Happy News

Well, it appears another small press has bitten the dust. Pill Hill Press was one of the first small presses to take a chance with me, an unknown Australian with a penchant for slightly bizarre short stories. I’ve appeared in three of their anthologies, and had another two accepted, and pending publication. But they may […]

Quick Interview

As part of the work writers do that’s not actually putting stories down, I’ve actually discovered I don’t mind being interviewed by people about books I’m appearing in. Most of the interviewers (especially online bloggers) have as much fun with it as we, the subjects, do, and so can come up with some interesting stuff.  Anyway, […]
