Ben Wheatley to direct, I wonder if they will sneak in some folk horror.

Seeing as there is no link to the forum from the main site, guess I should go somewhere else to ask but being an old stager here I go.

have there been any more publications since BFS Horizons #9?

and if so what, if not when is the next publication due?

It was good to see Cardinal Cox making an appearance in #9.

My new book has just been published. Copies arrived for me today.

SLAP-ON-THE-WRIST STORIES is a selection of tales controlled by numbers.

For example, 'Postcards From the Hedge' is told in 50 postcards from 50 different animals and each postcard is exactly 50 words long... 'Trouble with Drabbles' is a story made up of 100 stories each 100 words long... 'Only Sixty-Nine Whims Away' consists of 69 chapters each 69 words long... 'Ten of Our Trombones are Missing' consists of 66 chapters each 66 words long.

This book is therefore an example of OuLiPo writing.

The title of the book was suggested to me by fantasy writer James Bennett after I had expressed my enthusiasm for Kawabata's Palm-of-the-Hand Stories, one of my favourite short story collections of all time.

My book is available on Amazon and elsewhere in both paperback and ebook editions.

SCHIZOID: A psycho-medical thriller of heart-stopping mystery and suspense


Schizoid is a thriller worthy of high praise: a medical mystery that combines psychology, science, and the quirks of interpersonal relationships with an edge that keeps readers guessing to the end, as a writer’s dreams become his worst nightmare.”
Midwest Book Review

An eccentric scientist turned novelist gets lost in the grey zone between fiction and reality when real murders of young women seem copied from his latest, still-in-progress medical-thriller manuscript. A spellbinding serial killer thriller at breakneck pace from the author of Disorder. Perfect for fans of Jonathan Kellerman and Tess Gerritsen.

Someone is murdering female science students at an esteemed university. Against a backdrop of psychological intrigue and creepy healthcare settings, Kenneth Sorin, a young chemistry doctor and medical research associate turned suspense author, starts his own murder investigation with the help of his cat and his new mysterious girlfriend.

The killer removes an eye from each corpse and places emerald crystals into the empty eye sockets. Dr. Sorin—a crystal chemistry and medicinal chemistry specialist—receives strange telephone calls: an old, dead woman phones the author from her grave, encouraging him to look inside himself for the truth. Has he lost his mind? Could he be the killer himself?

I've been reading as many nominees as I can this year, as a kind of summer reading challenge.

I've just finished reading all the nominated novellas, and I've written a shadow juror blog post about them. Here it is.

Bear in mind the disclaimers: this is just for fun, completely unofficial, absolutely not endorsed by the society (although I think they would encourage us all to buy and read the nominees!), and I don't know anything about what the real jurors are thinking, the criteria they'll apply, or how they are deciding the awards. This is just what I'd be thinking if I were a juror in this category. Hope you find it interesting.
