Some Short Story News…

I’m incredibly happy to have my short story ‘The Woman Under the Ground’ included in the wonderful Weird Love collection released by the magnificent Pandril Press this November.

Weird Love coverHere’s some blurb –

This collection of short stories explores the ambiguities and nuances of love in its most diverse, startling and destructive guises.
This fresh anthology from published and new writers brings together lyrical, compelling and sometimes comic voices to tell tales of corrosive self-adoration, nuclear family fallout, forlorn desire, derelict affairs, and the quest for true(ish) love.

And (!) there’s to be a launch too.  Check out the Facebook page if you’d like to come along and help celebrate…

And – and! In other news, another of my short stories, ‘Coach Trip’ has been highly commended in the Manchester Fiction Prize 2013.

I think I love you Manchester 🙂
