The Old Roads and Other Stories

First of all, I am delighted to say that my story “The Old Roads” is up at the Burrow Press website, where you can read it for free. It’s the start of their Month of Horrors, which will bring you a new horror story every Tuesday for the rest of the month, so be sure to check back for the rest of the fiction that editor Teege Braune has lined up for you. Speaking of Teege, he is a wonderfully insightful editor and was a joy to work with.

Now, onto other stories!

“The Seventh Wave,” which was originally published in Paul Finch’s Terror Tales of the Ocean, has been reprinted in Undertow Press’s Year’s Best Weird Fiction vol. 3 and it’s available now in hardback or softcover from Amazon or from Undertow Press themselves. The guest editor this time around was Simon Strantzas.

Also, just a reminder that the anthologies Something Remains, a tribute to/collaboration with Joel Lane published by Alchemy Press, launched at Fantasycon (which was brilliant! amazing! Best FCon since Brighton 2012!) as did Newcon Press’s Ten Tall Tales, and both are also available now.

It is the tenth anniversary of NewCon Press, which is a very fine small press indeed run by Ian Whates. In celebration, NewCon has been releasing a series of publications including this one–in which we were asked to write a story of dark fantasy or horror that incorporated something about the number ten. Just look at that terrific lineup! My story, “One Little Mouth to Kiss You Goodnight” is in there along with ten other excellent writers (nine stories plus ten limericks from Mr. Campbell). It will be launched at the British Fantasy Convention (with wine!), but if you can’t attend, fear not. It’s also available for pre-order at the NewCon Press website.
