Whispers of Wickedness

4 of my stories are up on the Whispers of Wickedness site:


'Death's Door':


'Vessels of Light, Chapels of Darkness':

I'm currently working on expanding 'Vessels of Light, Chapels of Darkness' into a novella - just finished the first draft! (VoL, CoD is sort of a seed for the longer version.)

Off to Cornwall next week, so I'll be taking a breather on the old writing front. Got some books/mags to catch up on, including the latest issue of Black Static, and Jack Ketchum's short story collection, 'Peaceable Kingdom'. I've heard good things about Ketchum, so I'm really looking forward to reading this. Just finished Joe Hill's '20th Century Ghosts', a very fine collection of short stories. The first three pieces were brilliant; 'Best New Horror', '20th Century Ghost' and 'Pop Art' are some of the best pieces of fiction I've read in some time.

Completely blown away by 'My Father's Mask', too - it was weird and disorientating, kind of like a David Lynch movie, and there are certain bits that just won't leave my head...
