The Obsolete Man

Saturday, April 28th, 2012

Laid off from the shipyard. No work. No more boats for the time being. It will, at least, be nice not to have bloodshot eyes for a while.



My story Get It Down (which appeared in Innsmouth Magazine #6) was included in the Honourable Mention List for Ellen Datlow’s Best Horror of the Year Volume 4. Link.

Nice to know that she read it, never mind liked it.



Been trawling youtube looking at Harlan Ellison videos. Lots of people really hate Harlan, but I think he’s funny as hell. In this vid he shows off his sprawling comic collection. The actual storage archive is almost as impressive as the comics themselves.

Get It Down

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011

I’ve got a new story called Get It Down in issue six of Innsmouth Free Press. Glad to see this story finally creep into the daylight. The first editor I sent it to passed on it while stating that it was “frankly, mad.”

Which is fair enough really.

Click here to download the full issue as a PDF. Very nice cover by Jason Juta.

The good people at Innsmouth Free Press have posted a short interview with me wittering on about Lovecraft.

It’s worth a click just to guffaw at the picture of me with one side of my face looking confused and the other looking mildly irritated. How this impromptu chimera of expressions came about, I have no idea.

New story in Innsmouth Free Press

Innsmouth Free Press

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2009

Innsmouth Free Press is a fictional newspaper publishing faux news as well as original short fiction stories. We also feature some of Lovecraft’s classic tales.

They’ve already posted the full text of Lovecraft’s The Shadow Over Innsmouth.

The first issue launches on June 1st, 2009 and my short story Beneath The Cold Black Sea will be in the Autumn issue. Due out in the, ummm, Autumn.

I knew all that tentacle porn Lovecraft research would pay off.
