Don’t worry, I’m not making a habit of these posts, and certainly not “blogging” (the very idea!) haha 🙂
This is just to mention that a new story has gone live at one of my favourite sites: Perihelion SF. The title of the piece is Last Times.
In the last month, Stupefying Stories published a fun story of mine called The Hair-raising Spike. I have an added soft spot for this one because it’s set in Spain. Despite spending a lot of time in Spain, I’ve set very few stories there.
Another (ir)regular e-haunt of mine is Mythaxis. This time with a story called Timed Out. The site is a labour of love run by a friend of Andrew Leon Hudson (another Spain-based Brit). Both Andrew and Gil (the editor) have stories there, so go on–indulge yourself.
Thanks and warmest regards,
Happy New Year!
It’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything, so I’ll be brief…
Last year saw me briefly return to submitting fiction to magazines. I had some successes, a couple of which you can catch this week.
Captain Percina Saunders is a comedy space opera series running on Daily Science Fiction. Each adventure is a self-contained story, but you can read them in order here.
Tells of the Block Widowers is appearing right now in Perihelion SF. The title is a pun-laden nod to two strands of Isaac Asimov’s prodigious output.
Last year I joined the self-publishing masses by putting some of my short fiction into volumes. I used several pen-names so I could split the genres. Here’s a selection if you want to check out the free previews on Amazon…
I gave my alter-egos their own sites: James Livermore (Horror), John Retford (Sci Fi, Superhero), Douglas Minton (Fantasy), PJ Atterton (Crime). That’s about as far as my marketing efforts went.
I’m hoping to focus on longer works in 2017, so feel free to remind me that’s what I promised to do. The nudge will be appreciated.
Have a great 2017!
(Ah yes, the title above? Un lio = a disorganised mess (in Spanish). Lio 2 is its sequel. Written as LIO2 on a calculator, it reads as 2017 upside-down. I know, I know… 🙂 )
