March 2008

This month, not only is BLACK STATIC issue #3 out, but so is MURKY DEPTHS issue #3, and both contain stories by yours truly.

MURKY DEPTHS (www.murkydepths.com/),  as you can see from the banner below, features my short  science-fiction/horror story, SPEAK ILL OF THE DEAD, beautifully illustrated by Mark Bell.

Speak Ill of the Dead

Whilst BLACK STATIC has my weird World War 1 story, THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN, and artwork (both cover  and interiors) by the amazing David Gentry.

You can check out the first review of issue #3 at THE FIX  short fiction review site.

Go out a grab a copy of both. You won’t regret it. Honest!

Also  this month I received word from Barbara Roden that All Hallows # 44 is  now in production at Ash Tree Press. My story, Black Eyed Dog, isn’t planned for inclusion in #44, but  Barbara is hard at work scheduling the tales for the next two issues of All  Hallows, a magazine always worth the wait, so watch this space.

That’s  all for now. Take care and all the best,

Ian.
