'Year's Best' Anthologies

dozois 2014 strahan 8 horton 2014

The 2014 crop of 'Year's Best' anthologies have started to arrive, and I'm happy to say that I have stories in the three pre-eminent volumes. Gardner Dozois selected both my 2013 Asimov's stories, 'The Discovered Country' and 'Entangled' for inclusion in his mighty tome, and Jonathan Strahan and Rich Horton each chose one of them.

Traveller and the Book

Traveller and the BookHere's a new story of mine which moves into some hitherto little explored Borgesian territory. It's about the megalomania of writing, and how worlds and characters are never quite what you want them to be. And you can read it for free by clicking The Traveller and the Book.

reparateur frontsong of timeI will be taking part in a joint signing session for new PS Publishing titles at the World Fantasy Convention in Brighton on Friday 1st November at 4pm in the Regency Suite, Metropole Hotel.

The Reparateur of Strasbourg

reparateur front"My name, Ezekiel, is Ariadne. And I have a commission to ask of you . . ." 

A beautiful woman arrives at dusk at the workshop of a réparateur, or restorer, of religious objects set high amid the rooftops of a great cathedral city. She wants him to paint her portrait. But not as she is, or at least how she seems, but as she might appear many years into the future. So, against the looming backdrop of the French Revolution, a strange yet oddly touching relationship evolves. 

My vampire novella, The Reparateur of Strasbourg, can now be pre-ordered from PS Publishing HERE. This is a strong new work which takes my writing deep into the gothic and the supernatural. Part of me hates vampires but part of me loves them, and I think that shows. Click the picture for the full wraparound cover.


'Entangled' in Asimov's

asimovs1213  Following close on the heels of 'The Discovered Country', my story in the September 2013 Asimov's Science Fiction, my new novelette 'Entangled' is now available in the December 2013 issue of the same magazine. It's a sequel of sorts to 'The Discovered Country, although the events in the two stories take place in two very different near-future worlds.

The Reparateur of Strasbourg

Here's a sneak preview of the cover for my upcoming vampire novella, The Reparateur of Strasbourg, due out this autumn from PS Publishing. I'm really pleased with how the artwork has come out—as darkly glamorous as, I feel and hope, is the story which awaits the reader inside. The artist, Ben Baldwin, was very keen on my piece when he read it, and I think it shows... Click the picture for a larger version.
