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.

Voices Along the Road Anthology

A companion to the Another Place anthology, this included two poems of mine, Barriers and the Shore.

Staring at the Sun

My flash fiction ‘Schadenfreude’ has just been released in the themed anthology from Kind of a Hurricane Press, Life is a Rollercoaster.

The brief was to write a story on the theme of amusement parks.  My story is a bit of a satire, not an attraction you’d want to ride on…
