[personal profile] drunkwriter
I have published an e-anthology of ten of my (non-fannish) short stories! Something Nice - 10 Stories is now available from Smashwords and from Amazon. It's basically a collection of my favourite work from 2000 - 2011.

A blend of science-fiction, philosophy and the supernatural. Whatever else these stories achieve, they all made my Mum ask the same question. "Why don't you write something nice?"

Throwing Up With the Joneses tells you just why the bravest thing you can ever do is jump over your neighbour's fence. The Hero Function takes four thrilling climactic season finale scenes and shows why the hero should have just died. And meanwhile Evian stalks a post-apocalyptic Earth, seeking the last remnants of humanity, or a decent career path.

Inspired by, among others, Terry Pratchett, Marguerite Duras, Simone de Beauvoir, Douglas Adams, Albert Camus, Jean-Luc Godard, Paul Magrs, Michel Foucault, the writers of Doctor Who, and the League of Gentlemen.

It's about 23,000 words long and costs $0.99 or £0.77, depending where you buy it. Much of the material has been published before, in e-zines, blogs, small press magazines and audio, but all of the rights have now reverted to me and I'd like to put the material back out there. There's a free sample on both Smashwords and Amazon, and I hope you will at least take a look at that.
