I've just sold a new story called Tumbling Nancy to Subterranean Press. It features a writer of dreadful children's fiction, and an even more dreadful literary agent.  Should appear some time next year in their online magazine. More news and a link to this as and when.


Gardner Dozois has just confirmed that my story "Re-Crossing the Styx" will be appearing in the next Year's Best. Just like old times, and quite a few years since I've managed this. Obviously helps if you write some short SF!

I've just sold a new story to Asimov's Science Fiction Magazine. It's called The Cold Step Beyond, and is a belated (although long-planned) return to the universe of Breathmoss and Isabel of the Fall. More info as and when.


An old story of my called The Family Football is getting a new airing in a anthology of writing to showcase the charity Read International, who do excellent work to promote literacy in Africa. It's called "It Started With A Book" and also includes works by students involved in the charity's projects. Look out for more details at their website at http://www.readinternational.org.uk/

I'll be appearing and giving a talk at a John W Campbell conference in Rome on the weekend of July 10th. There doesn't seem to be anything up about it yet, but here's a link to the venue: http://en.museodiromaintrastevere.it/
