In reflective mode and being a lapsed(?) Goth I was thinking 2018 had been a rubbish year. But, some stuff notwithstanding, looking back, that’s just not true. Certainly, there have been some great high points, in terms of my writing life. So, here are some highlights. I’ll post about events in the next few days, but some published highlights first:

Another Place Anthology

This is a refugee-themed science fiction anthology in aid of the Lord Arthur Dubs foundation, so all in a good cause. This featured a long short story of mine, The Hikkikimori, about an alternate world where Edo period Japan never ended, full of Samurai battles and a burgeoning romance.

Again, catching up with my writing from the past few months!

Pleased to announce my long short story, Last Chance at the Mines of Madness, is one of two stories in Tales of the Weird West #6, under my M M Lewis pen name.

Sinister goings on in a Western mining village, as good folk are disappearing. Will Sheriff Oakley and his ragged posse of volunteers get to the bottom of it, or find more than they bargained for?

Check this out! The latest issue of Theaker’s Quarterly Fiction includes my competition-winning story ‘The Departure’. This was great fun to write as the aim was to write a story based on Howard Watts’ artwork. What sort of people were these, what was their world like and what could I extrapolate about their relationships based on the picture? I was sure the end of the world was involved somewhere, and possibly worse, family strife.

The first creative competition I’ve won since the South Wales Argus Transformers colouring competition. I remember I won a, er, Gobot (remember them?) with a windscreen for a face that transformed into a Volkswagen Beetle. The Robo Machine version of Bumblebee I guess.

Read it here, along with lots of exciting fiction and multimedia reviews: available for download in several formats plus print copy can be obtained:

It is guest edited by the zine’s long-time cover artist, Howard Watts, and includes stories inspired by his art, including competition winner “The Departure” by Mark Lewis, “Our Sad Triangle” by Len Saculla, and “The Stone Gods of Superspace” by Howard Phillips (a TQF crossover special featuring many friends from past issue), plus the more tangentially related “This Alien I” by Antonella Coriander and “The Little Shop That Sold My Heart”, and an entire weird novella from Anthony Thomson, “My Place”. Then a sixty-page review section features the work of Stephen Theaker, Douglas J. Ogurek, Jacob Edwards, Howard Watts and Rafe McGregor. The cover art is by Howard Watts.
