Well, I'm off on holiday for a week tomorrow. I may have time to relax and write something, but I could be too busy doing nothing. I sent off two more submissions today, so there are now six stories working their way through slush piles while I relax.

Return to the Grey Hole

My hard SF sequel The Grey Void has been accepted by Aphelion, the fourth story they've taken from me. It follows on from The Grey Hole, which was the first of my stories they accepted. They plan to publish it in issue 102 this month.

The War is Over

I've just read the best short story I have ever come across. The War is Over by Algis Budrys left me sitting in awed silence for several minutes after I finished it. When you've read as much sci fi as I have, it takes quite a story to do that. That's the kind of fiction I'd like to be writing one day.
