Weird Tales

Issue 365, cover art by Lynne Hansen

I am extremely excited to be in the latest edition of Weird Tales alongside a fantastic line up. Thanks to editor Jonathan Maeberry for including my story, ‘Tales From Alexandria’.

Jonathan took over as editor of the latest incarnation of the iconic magazine in 2019. As a teen I was a huge fan of Ray Bradbury’s short stories, so to a footnote in the pages of a magazine that published his work is a big thrill.

Issue 365 is available for pre-order now.
