My odd little piece (including “screen shots”) Deleted Scenes has been published in The New Flesh Magazine. Perhaps one of my oddest with, I hope, a good mix of humour and horror, but most hopefully something of a story in there. My thanks to the editors William Pauley III and Suzie Bradshaw (both of whom make appearances in the story – can you spot their roles?) for publishing this one. In all the craziness and bizarre at The New Flesh, it seems like the story has found a good home.
My quirky flash story The Neuron Thieves has just been published in The New Flesh Magazine. This is an odd piece, in a world that takes a lot of filling in from the reader – I can see it in my head, but lots is still grey. I wonder what others will make of it. How big is the building, how long is the pipe, what’s the world like outside of the pipe? Anyway, I hope you enjoy.
My latest story published on line is here – Bored Out Of My Skull, on the ever-wonderful The New Flesh Magazine. This is quirky weird strange horror, perhaps humour bizarro. I don’t know, but it was a fun story to write.
Yes, it’s Thursday when I usually post about what I’m reading, but truly nothing much has changed since last Thursday – still deep in the heart of reading the tutoring manual and readings. Whew.
A new story – “Bored Out Of My Skull” – is coming out on the The New Flesh Magazine on the 17th (okay, it’s already the 17th here in New Zealand, but I’ll post a proper link tomorrow).
Bored Out Of My Skull seems like a dopey title for a story – a total cliche and I do rail against using cliches. The story, however it is more literal – involving drills and helmets: the kind of thing that naturally finds a home at a place like The New Flesh which publishes flash fiction of the more bizarre and quirky kind. Originally I wrote the story with the cliche as a kicking off point, never thinking the title would stick.
This will be my third publication at The New Flesh, following the more literary “While He Lay Crumpled” and humourous “Submission”. Thanks to the editors Suzie and William for accepting my story.
The New Flesh Magazine has published my story “Submissions”. This is another epistolary story along the lines of “Automated Service” in Flashes in the Dark and “Small Classified Ad” in MicroHorror. (Okay, “Automated Service” is a telephone conversation, but it’s still the same kind of thing – no other narrative description besides the communications).
My story “Submissions” is coming out soon in The New Flesh. This follows “While he Lay Crumpled” from a few weeks ago, but is a very different kind of story. New flesh is a very creepy online magazine. Read the latest stories here. As usual, I’ll update when the story comes out.
My story “While he lay crumpled” has just been published by the new online magazine The New Flesh. It’s pretty new, so there are few stories there at the moment, but somehow I’m expecting big things.
Read While he lay crumpled.
