  • It’s always colder in your memory

    It’s always colder in your memory

    Hello dear people. In this time of strife and upheaval let me ignore all that for a moment and tell you of an incident that happened to me when I was but a wee child and growing up in Ayrshire, the land of Burns, cows and decayed towns. But not here, oh no. Rather, why…

  • 2016: The Year we’d mostly like to forget.

    Well, hasn’t 2016 been a truly terrible year? War, politics, death have all been busy this year which makes me doing a wee review of my writing feel somewhat unimportant. I entirely understand if you have more important things on your mind. That said, there has been the odd nice thing this year. I got…

  • Thirty Years of Glaswegian Story Building

    Thirty Years of Glaswegian Story Building

    UPDATE: Now available from here; Lulu shop page and Amazon print edition and Kindle edition Did you know that the Glasgow Science Fiction Writers Circle was started thirty years ago? Well now you do. Off the back of a writing course run by Duncan Lunan a small group began to meet regularly to critique each other’s work and encourage one…

  • Two posts in a year? By jingo!

    No, I’m as surprised as you that I have something to say more than once in a year. Anyhoo, first things first. Come the 28th of May, point your Kindles and other electronic reading doohickeys at Kzine where you will find me getting a story published in their Issue 15. I am deeply pleased that…

  • The Past Does Not Watch Over Us

    It is with great delight that I can point to my latest published short story, now available in e-book format in The Speculative Book It’s a story on education, black holes and fighting your parents. It also mentions pakora and features REAL SCIENCE. (I know, I must be mad) as I originally wrote it to…

  • 2015, the Year of the Long Wait

    Merry seasonal whatnots. It’s been a quieter year in the writing way. One story on god management published back in May and a lot of writing. One of the points of note this year has been the nearlies. I always like to assume that if a story is considered for a long time before it…

  • Agnes, a Fairy

    I’ve just spoted that Hysterical Realms, the latest Alternate Hilarities anthology containing my story, is available for buying on the internets here If you chipped in to the Kickstarter for this then thank you very much but if not and you fancy giving it a look then it is available in both Kindle and the…

  • The Modern World of Book Selling

    It’s been eighteen months but I now get to say I have a new story coming out. Hurrah! Called “Agnes, A Fairy” it is a story of gods, management and dodgy art. On the Grim Whim scale this is firmly on the Whim end. It sprang from a conversation following a Glasgow Science Fiction Writers Circle…

  • 2014, The Year Of Not So Much

    It’s time for the end of year review thing, something that was most enjoyable to write last year. But pride comes before a fall, so it seems only right that after last year’s belter of a start to this publishing larkey things would drop off. I ended last year feeling like a proper writer. Stories…

  • Politics, an argument with myself

    Been quite some time since I posted here so sorry. Even more sorry that when I do post it is going to be on politics. In the next few weeks everyone in Scotland gets a vote. Probably the most important single vote that I will ever take part in. I’ve tried to sit on the…
