Post-apocalyptic horror story accepted for anthology…

Fear me.

Siren’s Call Publications are a delightful trio of ladies. Kalla Monahan loves the zombies in a possibly quite wrong way, Nina D’Arcangela is a taphophile with a suspiciously excellent surname, and editor-in-chief Kate Munroe has a taste for wine as red as her hair. She’s picky. When it comes to wine, I’ll reach with equal gusto for redheads or blondes.

My thanks go to them for accepting KNOCK KNOCK, WHO’S THERE for their upcoming post-apocalypse anthology, Carnage: After the End.

Having a taste for the dark side (The Mist? The Road? Children of Men? Ooh, yes please), I envisioned a bright and ridiculous world full of dinosaurs and King Arthur’s knights and party dresses and beach balls. And then I bleached all the colour out of it and made it as cheery as Children as Men.

Thank you so much for accepting the tale. x

DARK MATTER sci-fi short story published in Defenestration Magazine

A poo meteor would be so beautiful… until it landed

It all started with a Facebook entry. Again. What if, I said to my FB friends, you discovered that a meteorite was heading towards Earth that was made entirely of poo? It was something that had been on my mind for some time. I was worried about it. Now that I’ve put the awful thought in your head, you may start worrying about it too…

What THEY said was a whole bunch of really, really interesting science about exactly what would happen if a poo meteor crashed into the Earth. They’re smart, those FB friends.

So it got turned into a short sci-fi story called DARK MATTER, published in Defenestration Magazine.

And now that I know exactly what I’d do if a giant poo meteor fell to Earth, I don’t have to worry anymore!
