Cat yawningIt is with a heavy dose of hot shame that I admit to neglecting this old website of mine over the past couple of months. Work on my play Love, Wrong Love (but love nonetheless) dominated matters for a time but with the ending of its succesful and borderline-glorious run last week, I can turn my attention to how my lovely stories have been doing out in the Wild World. So what’s been published? What’s been accepted? Is there any other GREAT NEWS? Read on…

Zzw-Jenny-D-084-G-Red-Dresses-Womens-DesignerWell isn’t this an immaculate slice of Hot Delight? I am absolutely ‘sur l’herbe’ to say that my short story ‘Three Holes (I love you)’ has been accepted by my good friends over at Jersey Devil Press.

It’s based on the time I went to see Prometheus, though nothing of the film has made its way into the text. (Thankfully. What a shit film!) It’s a bit of a laugh anyway, and it’ll be up around October for the anniversary edition of JDP, which I am absolutely honoured to be part of.

Take care!

stone-in-handWell yipes and yazoo, this is good news! My short story ‘JAR’ has been plucked from the rushes by the delightful folk over at Mama Grande Press

It’s a particularly saucy and chortlesome jape about a young boy and a magical jar and the delightful things he finds inside.

It should be out for July; do look out for it– ‘Jar’ hear me?!

Ha ha ha ha ha,

fison-david_christmas-totem-poleYipe! My short story ‘OSKALOPL’ has been accepted for publication by the transcendant people at Hello Horror.

Very proud of this story, particularly since it was nonsense word I made up while I was in the shower.

It’s a silly tale (but aren’t they all?) about some silly boys (ditto) doing an awful thing (ditto, ditto, ditto) It’ll be out soon.

*Ace*

england-travel-plug-hole-ladybower-reservoir-derbyshire-tony-mYip Yazoo! Well isn’t this a barrel of hot wonderful? My 70th short story acceptance is ‘Women Who Go Down in Fives’ which has been picked up by the gorgeous people over at Postscripts to Darkness. 

It’s an ace story of family frolics, going for a dip in the reservoir, and a particularly watery type of butter! Wow! What’ll I think of next?

crane_fly_halteresAnother slice of hot hooray today! My short story ‘Some of Them Make The Scare-Away Shape’ has been accepted for publication by the tumultuous people over at Phantom Drift.

It’s a rather charming story about a bunch of people and the big thing that they make and the resulting scrapes that this vague thing gets them into. *WOW* Who wouldn’t want to read that? Out soon!

onionYoop and Yazoo and big jammy kisses, my short story ‘In Passing Brass Onion’ has been accepted for publication by the outstanding people over at Cactus Heart.

It’s a silly story, partly inspired by the wall in our kitchen. ‘What?’ you may say, ‘How could you write a story about that?’ and I’ll just wink and keep on dancin’.

It’ll be out soon. Keep those eyes peeled! Like an onion!

Kids-Jigsaw-PuzzleWell hurrah and halloo and fol-de-rol,  I am cock-a-hoop to announce my short story ‘The Look-Away Club’ has been accepted for publication by the beautiful people over at Corvus.

It’s a silly, whimsical tale about one magical summer, filled with friendship, larks, and one *very* special jigsaw!

It’ll be out next month!

DSC05755Hurrah, hurrah indeed! I am glad to inform you, the person blithely skimming these lines, that my short story ‘A Caring for Creatures’ has been accepted by the fabulous people over at decomP magazinE.

It is a hefty story, filled with Metaphor and Artistic Angst but also has sort of flying things in it as well, so that’s good, I think.

Anyway, it should emerge from the pipe in time for May, so keep your good eye out for the silly thing!

orange-caramel-cosplay-6YAY! I am very pleased to announce that my short story ‘Soft Atheist Caramel’ has been accepted for publication by The Write Room.

I’m looking forward to seeing what people think of it, even after all this time I really have no idea what it is about!

YAY regardless,

G
