Flies due to settle very soon…

My debut short fiction Flies will be appearing in The 11th Black Book of Horror, to be published this summer by Mortbury Press.

Publisher Charles Black tells me he is awaiting the cover design for the latest anthology. It’s all very exciting, particularly as previous covers have been created by Scotsman Paul Mudie. You can see the most recent example below. 10BBoH

I am one of 14 writers featured. Some of the names are very well known in the field, such as John Llewellyn Probert, David A. Riley and Thana Niveau. The full line-up for #11 is as follows:

Two Five Seven Thana Niveau

East Wickenden Edward Pearce

Slaughtered Lamb Tom Johnstone

Forgive Us Not Our Trespasses John Llewellyn Probert

Land of the Sand Stephen Bacon

Alma Mater Kate Farrell

Keeping the Romance Alive Stuart Young

Teatime Anna Taborska

Flies Tony Earnshaw

And the Dead Shall Speak David Williamson

Every Picture Tells a Story Marion Pitman

The Weathervane Sam Dawson

Molli & Julli John Forth

I’m currently working on several other tales of woe, death and revenge. Themes include sex and execution, rage and murder, romance and magic, food and blood. The cast list features werewolves, zombies, wizards, pagans, authors, lovers, stalkers, harlots, children, grandfathers, fairies, explorers and academics.

The great filmmaker Sam Peckinpah once said: “Let me tell you, writing is bloody murder.” He was right, but sometimes committing murder can be such delicious fun…
