Return to Interzone

Some of you will know that I’ve a long held admiration for Interzone magazine. It’s the mag that made me fall in love with short form SF and Fantasy, and I’ve been reading it for forever. I’ve been published in Interzone several times–and several times before that in TTA Press’s first title, The Third Alternative–which is why it’s […]

A piece of the moon

Something on the horizon that I’m really chuffed to be involved with is a new short fiction initiative from NewCon Press called Moon Shots. The stories, commissioned from a really interesting bunch of writers, will be published as both an e-book and audiobook via the truly excellent Spacewitch indie genre fiction shop. You can pay […]

Free Bones

Coming to the end of the BFA reading now (literally, a couple of books and a comic to finish and I’m done), and the writing projects are forming a disorderly queue clamouring like kids to be first into the tuck shop. (And how old exactly is that simile? You see what happens when you don’t […]

The truth about me and astrology

As part of the pre-publicity for their Astrologica anthology, The Alchemy Press are running a series of interviews with the contributors. When it came to asking about my star sign, I’m afraid I couldn’t lie. It’s not that I think astrology is nonsense…no wait, if I’m being honest, it’s exactly that. It’s one of those […]

The premise of the anthology is to showcase some of the incredible words available in the lexicon of the Scots language, re-purposing them for a wider and modern audience. […]

Monthly : March

Reading long Dark Eden by Chris Beckett (Corvus) In SF they tell you that one of the great cliches is the Adam-and-Eve-on-a-new-planet story. You just don’t do it. Ever. Chris Beckett has, however, done exactly that, and Dark Eden is a simple, beautiful triumph of a book. His Adam and Eve are several generations dead, and […]

Solaris Rising 2

Mentioned this in passing a little while ago, but since the publisher has now posted about it, I guess it’s a good time to properly fanfare that I have a story forthcoming in Solaris Rising 2. This science fiction anthology, published by Solaris Books and edited by Ian Whates, has a really superb line-up of […]

Cowboy Saints

Really, really, REALLY delighted to hear that good old Brain In A Jar books have released a new short story collection by Phil Raines and Harvey Welles: The Cowboy Saints & Other Lost Wonders. Phil and Harvey stories were pretty much my favourite critiques in my early years at GSFWC. The Olivia Reunion Party (along […]
