You get none for a while, then three turn up at once!
In other words, I’m delighted to report that I have three new stories coming out in the next few weeks/months. All three are in charity anthologies; two are completely new and one is a reprint of a story I had in Betty Fedora #2 before that sold out.
First off is ‘Rabbit Stew’, a tongue-in-cheek tale based on an old (and terrible) World War 2 joke my Mum told me years ago, which is due out in Kannibal Cookbook from Down & Out Books soon, with proceeds going to St Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
Then I have a rather more thought-provoking story called ‘Bang to Rights’, about animal liberation activists and the sense of belonging, which should be appearing in Paladins 2, in aid of cancer charities.
Lastly, ‘Last Chance Saloon’, featuring a dirty weekend, a clapped-out car, and a deserted country road, will be re-published in the second Crime & Publishment anthology, working title Wish You Weren’t Here, soon. This is very much a work-in-progress, but donations will be heading to a respite holiday charity, possibly the Calvert Trust.
Do keep checking back for a revised timetable, cancellations, fares and more, which I’ll post as soon as I have them. Just don’t get run over by the bus…
