Escapades in Argentina

 I'm rather pleased that my short story Escapades in Time has been published by Argentinian webzine Axxon and now appears in issue 295.

The story first appeared in audio form on the Tall Tale TV podcast and has also been published in Galician at Nova Fantasia. This is my twelfth story in Spanish.

In the Centre of the Floor, a Body

 A blog called Ontos, which discusses SF and mystery fiction, has published a neat little article about my alien murder mystery story The Sound of Death.

It's got some great quotes and  a character list and has pointed me towards an interesting looking short story collection that I think I'll track down.

Polish Review Quote

 My review of Cixin Liu's The Wandering Earth has been quoted in Polish for the new Polish edition of the book. I've seen it quoted in several places in fact.

Book Review: The Compelled by Adam Roberts and Francois Schuiten

The Compelled is a gorgeous-looking e-book written by Adam Roberts with wonderfully atmospheric illustrations by Fran├žois Schuiten that have an almost retro-Victorian look to them. The book is set in modern times, but I kept finding myself viewing it through steampunk goggles as I immersed myself in the world of the Compelled.

Aurochs, Cave Bears and Other Charismatic Megafauna

The Hungarian translation of my new story Aurochs, Cave Bears and Other Charismatic Megafauna is out now in issue 366 of Galaktika magazine. 

This is the third in this series of stories, and my fifth story in this magazine altogether. The story follows Yorrick and Sandy in their third adventure together after Squirrels, Foxes and Other Fine Specimens and Haggis, Rhino and Other Unexpected Wildlife. Also back for this story are Arkady and Lucja who appeared in Haggis..., with Arkady having also inexplicably appeared in Accountability that was recently published in Hybrid Fiction magazine. Joining the crew this time is Dr. Ellen West who you will also see in the forthcoming Expenses Claim for Snowdonia Bigfoot Expedition to be published in Neon literary magazine in November.
