Invitation to Madness

Recently established publishing outfit ‘Forgotten Tomb‘ are a small press with big ambitions, who recently invited me to submit to one of their first forays into the world of anthologies.

My piece, ‘Rank & Defile‘, has now been accepted into their ‘100 Doors To Madness‘ anthology, which aims to celebrate the diversity of the horror genre by providing 100 original scares from 100 different authors in the form of flash/micro fiction.

They’ve had the great idea of keeping the Table of Contents as a live document, so anyone wanting to keep track with whose getting involved can do so over at the FT website link above.

Publication is planned for September 2013, but the anthology may be out earlier if the 100 slots 100doorstomadnessfrontbecome filled before then. The anthology should be available from all the usual online retailers and I’ll put up more details nearer the time. Until then here’s a preview of the cover artwork to whet your appetite.


The ‘blade itself

Have just heard that my story ‘With The Band‘ has been accepted by Niteblade magazine for publication in their September issue. Am really pleased with this one, as it’s a magazine that I’ve been trying to ‘crack’ for a while now.

Early days yet, but once paperworks done, I’ll update the site with a publication date etc.

The Horror! The Horror!

Can finally reveal that my story ‘101 Damnations‘ has been accepted by The Horror Zine for publication in their upcoming, as yet untitled, anthology.

The book is due for release in early 2013 and contains new works from an extremely illustrious collection of names. Will put up more details nearer the time. Until then, you’ll just have to wait.

It ain’t Kansas

Just heard that my story ‘Lemming Revolution‘ has been accepted by Angelic Knight Press for their ‘No Place Like Home’ anthology, due out in November.

Will upload details and links once they become available nearer the time.

Just heard that my short story ‘To Kafka, With Love‘ has been accepted by online speculative fiction magazine The WiFiles.

The piece is slated to be published on February 10th, 2013, so just in time for Valentine’s Day.

Genie’s out of the bottle

My short story ‘When Wishes Are Horses‘ has just been accepted by Crimson Melodies Publishing, slated to appear in the January 2013 edition of their yet-to-commence monthly e-zine, Bloodtide.

More details will be added to the site nearer the publication date.
