The Gate Theory is in print! It looks stunning, thanks to the clever design skills and dedication of Geoff Brown at Cohesion Press.
The new story is called “The Gate Theory” and is one that has been eating away at me for a while now.
The first public showing of the book will be at the frantic book frenzy that is “Launch of All the Words” at the Noted Festival this weekend. I’m going to be channelling my inner domestic goddess but you’ll have to come along to find out how! (Pictures next week if they don’t get banned).
James Doig and I are taking part in another Noted activity. On Friday night, we’ll be reading ghost stories and leading people to write their own in the amazing St John’s in Reid. I have a bizarre collection of story prompts, loaned to me by the Green Shed, to help people create.
News is out today of Paula Guran’s next Year’s Best Dark Fantasy and Horror, and I’m thrilled to say that my story “The Nursery Corner”, which first appeared in Fearful Magic edited by Jonathan Strahan, has made the list. Really happy about this. The story is a very heart-felt one for me and I’m glad that Paula feels the same way.
That’s all for now!
