Tell No Lies by John Grant is now available via Amazon, etc.

It is an easy enough mistake to make – the most natural mistake in the world.

Cello is hooked up to the machine, but whose dreams does she experience?

The house is suddenly infested, but with … what?

At the Edinburgh Fringe he meets Kristie. She seems to be exactly what he needs.

The books Philip buys contain a signature that has no right to be there.

In a West Country village petrol is ridiculously cheap. Where does it come from?

Caught in a blizzard he finds himself in Memoryville … where he meets an old acquaintance…

Ginfalcio Beeswax and Truculence Fish are all that stand between the monsters from the blackness of outer space and the end of mankind. But are issues closer to home more frightening than multi-tentacled aliens?

Christopher – their miracle child.

Nick’s lives are … haunted, but by whom?

The artist is dead but her art lives on.

It’s Benjy’s birthday – and he wants his own universe.

Thanks, Andrew. I aim to be there (at Edge-Lit)  -- not sure of the dates, though.

A few words from "Lives" by John Grant:

We are waiting for Christopher to get home. Sipping wine around the kitchen table, Alice and I are just at the stage of starting to get worried. He’s all right, we say to each other occasionally, betraying our concern that there might be something wrong. He’s all right: Dick Charters will have picked Chris and Harry up okay from after-school drama practice, it being Dick’s turn this week to fetch the two nine-year-olds. Maybe the traffic’s hellish. Maybe Dick’s run out of gas – wouldn’t be the first time he’s done that – and even now they’re waiting for the rescue vehicles. Something like that.
