Halloween is nearly here - my favourite time of the year. It's the real new year, baby. The veil between the worlds is at its thinnest and it's the time to remember those who've gone before, to remember what we have and to marshal hope for the future. It's also become a time to let your imagination run wild and what better to assist you in this spooktacular endeavour than pointing you in the direction of some right good reads.
Fox Spirit is once again flexing its increasingly mighty wings and this Halloween the good folks there bring you the delectable oddness that is Weird Noir. Presented and edited by Kate Laity, that woman of many wonders, it's a trove of harebrained schemes, insidious otherness and black humoured fatalism. My story "A Kick in the Head" is first up - and it's my first paid story. So do a fledgling writer a solid and avail yourself of a little Weird Noir, if you're of a mind. You'll find many more reasons to read on once you've done your favour to me. Trust.
Brightest blessings sweetlings. Don't let the bed bugs bite.
