It’s been a while since I announced any confirmed news on this site (plenty of that to come soon) but I have some news I’m thrilled to share.
My story ‘Aperture’ will be published in Volume 5 of Weird Horror Magazine that’s scheduled for the Autumn.
Undertow Publications have put out some fantastic books and magazines over the years so it’s genuinely an honour to be working with a press I really admire.
‘Aperture’ is a happy accident of two things. Firstly, my new(ish) love for photography and different versions of the world you can see through the lens and secondly, reading Writing the Uncanny (ed. Dan Coxon & Richard V. Hirst). I gobbled the book down earlier this year and it had a profound effect on my reading and writing. This excellent tome got me thinking about other ways to tell stories and how to vary my approach.
‘Aperture’ is the first of three stories that I’ve written with a new perspective and I’m hopeful that the others will also find such welcoming homes.
There’s no release date for Weird Horror Magazine yet, but I’ll keep you posted on social media as and when it’s announced.
I’m off for a brew and a sweet treat to celebrate.
