Okay...

I've been writing for far too long to think about - but never all that proliferatively. Most recently Read Raw Press published Kittens in RAW TERROR (edited by Ian Hunter); and Welcome to the Hotel Marianas made it into THE BITTER END: TALES OF NAUTICAL TERROR (edited by Jessy Marie Roberts) from Pill Hill Press. A new Damian Paladin tale, Sailors of the Skies, appeared in DARK HORIZONS 55 (edited by Stephen Theaker) last year.

I've also been helping Cubicle 7 with a supplement to their STARBLAZER ADVENTURES RPG entitled Legends of Anglerre, based on several Sword & Sorcery issues I wrote for the late STARBLAZER comic from DC Thomson.

Once, I even garnered two nominations for the British Fantasy Awards, both for THE PALADIN MANDATES from The Alchemy Press.

And they'll never forgive me if I don't mention The Alchemy Writers Group, of which I've been a member since it began.

And peeps?  You need to go read Welcome to the Hotel Marianas, as it is ace! ;D

Possibly the very shy and retiring author in question should mention his recent blog post which talks about it here!

Hey - I've made the long-list! Twice, too!

And don't think I don't know who's responsible, either...  ::)

And if anyone wants to read a piece of Mike's fiction, his story 'Parlour Games' (first appearing in Tales from the Smoking Room) is reprinted on the Alchemy Writers site!

Just received a contract for my story The Appalachian Collection which is to be published by Pill Hill Press in BACK TO THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE: More Horror in Rural America (edited by Jessica A. Weiss & Jessy Marie Roberts). The tentative release date is September 2010. www.pillhillpress.com

What does a Brit (and a Brummie to boot) know about rural America, you might very well ask. Buy the book and find out  ::)
