Murky Depths issue #10
When off duty murder police, Adrian Hawkins, heard the news the mutilated body of a young girl had been found on the outskirts of Dead Town, he didn’t hesitate or stop to consider the consequences of his actions; it didn’t matter the girl was a deadhead or that he was jeopardising his career: all he could think about was his daughter, Kimberly, and what the Grinders had done to her.

The DOOMOLOGY: THE DAWNING OF DISASTERS anthology, due from Library of Science Fiction & Fantasy Press, appears to be coming together nicely, as this morning I received the formal contract for my post apocalyptic, cannibal-pirate, adventure story AFTER THE FLOOD, together with a note from the editor commenting that all the stories have now been copyedited, and, once all the contracts have been returned, the completed manuscript will be ready to be formatted and a cover artist commissioned.
I’ll let you know more on this project as I hear it.
First up the bad news: as of issue #7, SHRIEK FREAK QUARTERLY will be no more. This means THE NIGHT BUSwill not see print, but even worse than that is the loss of yet another market and a good one at that.
However, don’t despair, as there is good news: Terry Martin, editor and publisher over at the wonderful MURKY DEPTHS, has just informed me that MURKY DEPTHS has been shortlisted for the Best Magazine award by the British Fantasy Society (winner to be announced at this year’s Fantasycon in September). Actually, this is not just good news, it is fantastic news, so much so, you should immediately go pick up a copy (or three) in order to find out for yourself why this nomination is so well deserved – better still, take out a subscription and then you’ll never have to miss out.
Issue #13 is at the printers right now, so head on over to the THE HOUSE OF MURKY DEPTHS and go mad – you really have no excuse, and, whilst you’re there, you can take the opportunity to pick up any back issues you may have missed out on (I particularly recommend issue #3 and issue #10, as I’m in those).
Go on, what are you waiting for: you know it makes sense?
