My 6th and final appearance in the wonderful Metaphorosis Magazine

I was very sad to find out that Metaphorosis Magazine would finish up after its 100th issue later this year. Metaphorosis’ creator and editor, Morris, has been an amazing supporter, publishing six of my stories in his magazine and another three in anthologies. And each time he provided really helpful editing, with insightful suggestions that greatly improved my stories and my writing in general.

For the last year of Metaphorosis Magazine, Morris has invited 12 authors he enjoyed working with to write one final story for the magazine. This is my contribution, Colossus. I’m very honoured to see it appear in issue number 99. All the best to Morris with his own writing and future projects. Colossus can be read or listened to for free here.

My first appearance in Every Day Fiction

My horror micro fiction, Excision, has been published in Every Day Fiction. They were a great magazine to work with, with some really helpful suggestions from their editors. I’m very pleased with the final product. Every Day Fiction allows readers to rate their stories, and so far, people seem to like this one which makes me very happy. In fact, it’s currently the top-rated horror short story in the magazine! Excision can be found here.

First Story of 2024 – ‘Changeling’ in Aurealis #167

After a quiet 2023 on the writing front, my first story for 2024 has been published in the excellent Australian magazine, Aurealis. ‘Changeling’ is a short horror story and represents my fourth appearance in Aurealis. The story also received a positive review from Tangent Online, which I was really pleased with. You can buy a copy of the magazine here and you can read the review of my story by David Wesley Hill here.
