The Goddess of the North – acquired by REUTS

I’m delighted to announce my fantasy THE GODDESS OF THE NORTH has been acquired by @REUTSpub reuts.com/new-reuts-wint… DI Sara Nayar is not the bright young police detective she seems to be; she’s actually the Hindu goddess Saraswathi, living as a human after a dispute with her mother, the trickster goddess Mohini.  When a man is murdered […]

Not So Stories Available to Preorder

The short story anthology Not So Stories is available to preorder. Written by PoC as rebuttals to the original colonialist nostalgia, there are a wide variety of tales. I touched on the feeling of disconnect, how diaspora often feel they have no home in their current land, nor the land of their parents. From the foreword by […]

Story in No So Stories Anthology

I have a story ‘Samsara’ coming out in the wonderfully titled Not So Stories by Abaddon Books, a diverse anthology written “in reaction” to Rudyard Kipling’s Just So Stories. A spokesperson for Abaddon Books said: “Rudyard Kipling’s Just So Stories was one of the first true children’s books in the English language, a timeless classic […]

Is it possible to love Mad Max: Fury Road any more?

You know what, I think it is. I knew before I saw the film that it was made with old-school practical effects, full of skilful stunt driving and careful explosions, but without seeing the actual footage, it was hard to imagine. Watch this all the way though. My jaw dropped by the last stunt…

Where Are We Going? Some Reflections on British Horror

Nina Allan has written a great piece over at Strange Horizons. It looks at British Horror, the present and the future. She bases her thoughts on FantasyCon in Nottingham. One of the events I was most looking forward to at last autumn’s FantasyCon in Nottingham was a panel I was invited to sit on entitled […]

After the Fall

I have a new short story out in After the Fall. In a world of transhuman survival and horror, technology allows the re-shaping of bodies and minds, but also creates opportunities for oppression and puts the capability for mass destruction in the hands of everyone. Other threats lurk in the devastated habitats of the Fall, dangers […]
