Free publicity. Nice.

A big thank you to Ally and Stephen for setting this up.

I'm Interzone's book reviews editor. Interzone 227, the current issue, came out a week ago and you'll find its contents here.

I also occasionally write things and occasionally they even get published. Sometimes they are published in Dark Horizons.

Flies (Dark Horizons 52)
Passing Through (Dark Horizons 54)
The Beating Heart (Dark Horizons 55)

And The Bordello of Doom is scheduled to appear in Dark Horizons 56, due out very, very soon. It's a gentle little story of friendship in the old days. I hope you like it.

Wow - Red Christmas, my story in Supernatural Tales 16, is on the longlist for the British Fantasy Award for best short story. A great big thanks to whoever recommended it.

Supernatural Tales 16 is the current issue and can can be ordered here. It probably wouldn't be fair to offer the story as a PDF because of this, but a very short sample was published on the Supernatural Tales blog, and that will have to do for now.

Dark Horizons 56 is out and you should all have your copies by now. Or soon, maybe.

It contains my wonderful little story The Bordello of Doom.

Anybody got any questions?

Nope?

Good.

Soon your BFS magazines will contain nothing but my fiction, bwuhahaha!

How do I install a paypal button on this thing so that members can bribe me to stop?
