It Doesn't Have To Be Right…

… it just has to sound plausible


Postscripts Far Voyager

My contributor copy of Postscripts 32/33 Far Voyager landed with a thud on my mat this weekend. I’m especially pleased about this one, because my story provided the anthology’s title. (I didn’t get named on the cover, though.) ‘Far Voyager’ is another of my alt space stories, based around the premise that one of the Voyager probes was manned. There are a few clues to the identity of the astronaut, although he’s not actually named.


Also in the anthology are many excellent writers, including Paul Park, Ian Watson, Michael Swanwick, Alison Littlewood, Richard Calder and Angela Slatter.


w00f! A story sold

My story ‘Barker’, a re-imagining of the flight of Laika, the first dog in space, as an American man, has been bought by New Horizons, one of the British Fantasy Society’s two journals.

New Horizons is biannual, and my story will appear in the December 2010 issue.

Don’t forget that Postscripts #20/21 ‘Edison’s Frankenstein’ is currently available from PS Publishing. It contains my story ‘Killing the Dead’.

And keep an eye open for Jupiter #28, due in April, which will contain the second of my Euripidean Space stories, ‘A Cold Dish’.
