After a good deal of throat-clearing, I'll start this blog on a note of joy:
'Smokelong Quarterly', one of my favourite sites for short fiction, has agreed to publish my short story 'Zombie vs Ninja'! It will go online mid-April.
Also, a recording of my dulcet(ish) tones reading 'Restless Apple Jackson' can now be heard at the excellent Words With Jam podcast. Please click here to listen.
