Art Attack

artattackMy latest short story, ‘Art Attack’, is out today at British crime magazine Near to the Knuckle.

The story is loosely based on real life: a news item about a sculpture created from knives handed in during a police amnesty.  The real story ended well (and the sculpture is impressive to say the least) but I’m afraid as usual my mind wandered off to some very dark places, and ‘Art Attack’ is the result.  Apologies to the sculptor and the people who dreamed up the original, very laudable scheme for any liberties I took!

You can read the story at Near to the Knuckle (free) – I just hope it doesn’t put you off art for life!
