Fantastic Review of The World and the Stars

Prominent genre review site SF Crowsnest has published a glorious review of the anthology The World and the Stars. The review praises the editor, Chris Butler (who did a smashing job, by the way), and calls out some highlights of the book.

The reviewer calls my story, “The Madness of Pursuit, the Desire of Lonely Hearts“, as a “fabulous adventure”. He goes on to say that “Creating a situation where…technology still allows for an old-fashioned maritime adventure is quite a skill and this story pulls it off nicely.”  Well, thank you, Mr Jones!   I have the Montpelier Writers Group to thank for helping me shape this into a better story.

A lot of great stories are in this book. Buy it now! Ask for at your local bookstore or get it at Amazon. There is something in it for everyone. You won’t be disappointed.

‘Rocket Science’ Anthology Available, Plus Review in The Guardian

The Rocket Science anthology was officially launched in London. Although I could not make it, I heard the book made a big splash and sold out. The book is now available from Mutation Press or Amazon. I have a copy and it looks great! And the stories are very, very good.

The book also earned a very positive review in The Guardian, with Eric Brown calling it ‘superb’ and mentioning the ‘standard is very high’. Since I am in the book I am, of course, happy about that. Read the review at The Guardian.

So what are you waiting for? Go buy a copy!

Purchase here:   Mutation Press   or     Amazon

New Story, New Anthology – SALE!

I have just heard that editor Ian Sales has picked up my story, “Slipping Sideways”, for the new anthology, Rocket Science. I am particularly happy because I will be sharing the TOC with friend and author Stephen Gaskell. Rocket Science will be released in 2012 and will be published by Mutation Press. Back in 2010 Mutation Press published the acclaimed book Music for Another World, and featured some great writers. I am glad to be in this next anthology. Buy the first anthology, and pick up Rocket Science when it comes out.
