I should be busy packing since I’m heading off tomorrow to this year’s Crime & Publishment weekend at The Mill Forge in Gretna Green, Scotland. I went last year, had an absolute blast, met some wonderful people, and picked up all sorts of weird and wonderful facts about crime writing, so I’m really looking forward to repeating the experience.
However, there is just time to round up a few bits and pieces of news before I bury myself in a heap of suitcases.
First, a couple more reviews of anthologies I have stories in. This one, very thoughtful, about Exiles: An Outsider Anthology; and this one about Drag Noir. I’m especially pleased with the latter because the reviewer has been so kind about my story, ‘Wheel Man’.
Second, it’s now less than a month until the Rogue anthology hits the streets. This collection of stories featuring a flawed central character includes work from some of the (literary!) heavyweights of the genre, including Paul D Brazill, Ryan Bracha, Aidan Thorn and Gareth Spark. And, er, me. My story ‘Singing From the Same Sheet’ explores the differences between good and evil, and how they may be closer than we think. The book’s due out on April 2nd so keep watching this space.
