I know, I’ve been slacking on the reviews recently, but I have a good excuse! I’ve been reading Peter F. Hamilton’s Great North Road, an 1100 page epic SF novel. It’s taken me the last seven weeks to read, in which time I would normally read about seven books! It was huge, and mildly exhausting! I finally finished the book on Monday, and have managed to acquire a copy of Morpheus Tales: The Best Weird Fiction, Volume 2 for review, so that will be appearing shortly.

This is a limited (1000 copies) first edition, and features some of my favourite stories from the second year of Morpheus Tales Magazine, including stories by Ray Garton and Joe R. Lansdale.

The printed version of the book is available to buy now from lulu.com, and will soon be available on Amazon:

Writing is sometimes a thankless task. Endlessly hunched over a typewriter/piece of paper/keyboard, pouring out your heart, trying desperately to put into words the perfect visions in your head.  Sending it to editors in the hope that one of them will see some spark of brilliance, and feeling the harsh, wounding, agony of every rejection. Why do we do it? The answer is acceptance. The thrill of realising someone else gets what you are trying to say. The feeling that people will be reading your words, that the vision in your head is being transferred, possibly around the world.

My story “Shoot Out” appears in the Morpheus Tales Urban Horror Special Issue, go get a copy now feel and transfer my vision to your head. You’ll enjoy it, I know you will!
