Artwork for “The Machinehouse Worker’s Song”

Hot on the heels of the Interzone cover (art by Jim Burns), here is the incredible interior artwork for my contribution, THE MACHINEHOUSE WORKER’S SONG.  The artist is Wayne Haag, whose film credits include: THE LORD OF THE RINGS; THE FIFTH ELEMENT; SUPERMAN RETURNS; and the forthcoming THE WOLVERINE.  He also worked on the science fiction television series, FARSCAPE.  Wayne has created two oil paintings for the May/June issue of Interzone, the first of which you can see below.  If you click on the image, not only will you be able to enjoy the painting in more detail, but you should be able to read the opening of my story.  Copies can be purchased from TTA Press.

Interzone #246 cover

Here’s the cover of issue #246 of the UK’s leading science fiction magazine, INTERZONE.  Out next month from TTA Press, it features stories from Aliette de Bodard, Georgina Bruce, Priya Sharma, Jess Hyslop, Nigel Brown, Lavie Tidhar, and yes, me (a 6,300 word tale, THE MACHINEHOUSE WORKER’S SONG).  The cover painting was created by Jim Burns.

‘Crimewave’ acceptance

Following the appearance of THE THINGS THAT GET YOU THROUGH in UK horror magazine, Black Static, and the acceptance of THE MACHINEHOUSE WORKER’S SONG for sister mag, Interzone, I am extremely pleased to announce that my latest, THE SPACE THAT RUNS AWAY WITH YOU, will appear in issue 12 of TTA Press’s Crimewave.  Achieving the triple is pretty special to me, and it has given me another jolt of confidence to keep writing and keep getting my work out there.  Thanks to editor Andy Cox for his continuing support.
