Lady Dragon and the Netsuke Carver

I’m delighted that “Lady Dragon and the Netsuke Carver” has been accepted by Interzone magazine. I wrestled with this story for a while and I owe a debt to the lovely Sharon Kae Reamer and Robert Rowntree, whom I met at BristolCon last year. They were kind enough to read it and their suggestions made it so much better.  Sharon’s novel, Primary Fault, is out soon.

HWA Bram Stoker Award 2012 Reading List

I am very happy that “The Ballad of Boomtown” (Black Static Issue 28) is on the HWA Bram Stoker Award 2012 Reading List. Issues 27 and 28 of Black Static has a strong showing on the list with great writers like Carole Johnstone, Jacob Ruby, John Ingold, Stephen Bacon and Simon Bestwick.

Just to be clear, this is the HWA reading list not a ballot or nominee list for the awards themselves.

On a different note,  I’m going to be a guest on RedShift Radio on Thursday 14th June. Tim Prevett hosts a regular show, Something Different, from 7-9pm for anyone with an interest in heritage, history and the mysterious. You can listen via a link from Tim’s page. I am very, very nervous.
