My New Book

I am utterly thrilled, delighted and incredibly proud to be able to tell you that my collection of short, short stories will be published by the fabulous Roast Books in the summer.

More details, including title and release date to follow.

But for now let me just say that I couldn’t be happier to be with the people who brought out two of my favourite books from last year, L. Schick’s, Lizard and A.C. Tillyer’s An A-Z of Possible Worlds.

I am a very happy man.

And really, really bloody excited.
