Upcoming publications & Stories In The Wild….
Warning: Gory, depressing and downright deviant – my tale has the closest to a happy ending you’ll find and it’s manga-fusion craziness to boot!

I’m also one of the finalists in the Aesthetica writing competition, and thus appeared in their anthology. Which can be purchased on their site. It’s chock full of great stories of a more literary bent, so if SF/F/Horror isn’t your thing (why the heck not?! ) then have a look at that instead here
You can read my crazy little fairy tale punk weird western ‘Nil Desperandum’ in the fabulous ‘Tales of the Nun and Dragon’ featuring such luminaries as Pat Kelleher, Cat Connor, Adrian Tchaikovsky, Sarah Cawkwell and Joan De La Haye along with a myriad other fabulous authors – find all links to buy conveniently collated at FoxSpirit Press.
My story ‘Unravel’ will appear in another fabulous FoxSpirit anthology later this year called ‘Tales of Eve’ – more info when the time comes.
Anachron Press, the force behind the horrifying City of Hell are releasing an anthology called ‘Urban Occult’ and I have a story appearing in that very anthology called ‘The Ghosts of my City Walk’. That’ll be coming out some time in March.
Blurb: Behind urban life, weird and horrific things fester.
The whispers and chills of things long gone… the promise of power from the darkness… the seduction of those that lie in the shadows… the occult is all around us: in town houses, in mansions, and in your very own street.
Editor Colin F. Barnes brings together a critically acclaimed cast of authors from around the globe who look into the stygian gloom, explore the dark corners of our houses, and peer into the abyss of human temptation.
I have a story called ’4 Walls’ in Firedance Books ‘Broken Worlds’ anthology. You can find this on amazon.
What do we do when God becomes an unwanted houseguest, you’re in love with the wrong girl and aliens decide to eat California? Take a wild ride with 15 writers from around the globe to discover their version of a broken world… and the humour, compassion and love which saves us. From murder to manga, heartbreak to horror, Broken Worlds dances us through times, genres and worlds. Prepare to be thrilled, tickled, scared and enchanted… it’s one hell of a ride.
And as the Umwelt also appears on the Writerlot site, a writing collective of which I am founding member, the episode ‘When it’s Time to Party…’ from the first Umwelt series appears in our collection ‘The Best of Writerlot’. Find it on amazon.
Wild women, warriors, the first moments of love. Muses, metafiction and murder. Find new voices, new series and cracking stories in this dizzying collection from the WriterLot team. WriterLot.net produces great new fiction for its followers every day. This collection celebrates some of the best, filled with unforgettable characters, heart-stopping action, and the trembling uncertainty of personal relationships. It captures the essence of what it is to be human (or, in one case, what it is to be a dog).
Finally my story ‘In Sleep’ will be published in the sequel to ‘Machine of Death’ titled ‘This is How You Die: Stories of the Inscrutable, Infallible, Inescapable Machine of Death’. The magnificently titled sequel will be released in July 2013, premiering at Comic-Con in San Diego. It will be published by Grand Central Publishing.
This one is going to be awesome, so keep an eye out!
