Tales from Plexis

The anthology TALES FROM PLEXIS has just been published. These are stories set in and around Julie E. Czerneda’s Clan Chronicles books. My story “The Restaurant Trade” is included, and I’m thrilled and delighted to have a story in this fabulous book. Julie Czerneda and DAW were a joy to work with.



Martian Magazine

Pleased to say I have sold a drabble (a story told in exactly 100 words) to Martian Magazine. This was a fun little thing to do and I look forward to seeing it published there.

If you are so inclined, you can help to fund Martian through its current indiegogo campaign. This will not affect whether or not my story is published, but might affect how many more stories Martian is able to buy and how quickly they are published.

EDIT: Martian Magazine is no longer publishing new work, and will not now be publishing my drabble.

2015 Writing Summary

I had three key publishing events during 2015. The anthology I edited, The World and the Stars, came out in April.

The paperback edition of my novella The Flight of the Ravens was published in August.

I also published a novelette, The Deep of Winter, in Interzone magazine. This is the latest in the “spores” series.

If you’re wondering what to do with your Christmas gift vouchers, any of the above would make fine choices. 🙂

I’ve been stepping up the pace, with a lot of new work written during 2015. In September I returned to the Milford writing workshop after a gap of four years, and received very positive feedback on the novel I am currently writing. Right now I have another novel and a few short stories submitted to various potential publishers. I feel very positive and rejuvenated as a writer, and I can’t wait to see what develops during 2016.
