Dark Spires

I’ve another announcement to make! I’ve had a story accepted into Dark Spires, Colin Harvey‘s next anthology. Entitled ‘Outside’, it’s an unusual foray into horror for me, where one man watches his entire world disintegrate around him.

Colin, a writer himself (check out Winter Song and Damage Time on the Angry Robot website), released Future Bristol last year, and his latest follows a similar West Country theme. Featuring genre stories set within the counties comprising Thomas Hardy’s Wessex, Dark Spires promises a mix of horror chills, flights of fancy and SF speculation.

“[We’ve] as diverse a list [of stories] as we could put together,” Colin says.  “Sea wolves in 19th century Lyme Regis, invading alien angels on the North Somerset coast, a quasi-immortal in current-day Exeter; we have Camelot and Alfred the Great, but also Hardy World and the return of Herbert George Wells. And of course hagfish…” (That’d be from my story).

“Copies can be pre-ordered very soon at a discount from the online shop at Wizard’s Tower Press, who will be launching the book at Bristolcon on November 6th — where attendees can buy copies, also at a discount! Both electronic and any remaining paperback copies will be available after the con for ordering from the shop.”
You can learn more at Colin’s website, where you can find links to announcements about the book.

    Good to see something has come of the dreaded hagfish…

      It’s all rewritten and shiny new, with lots of extra bits. It’s much better than it was, and that’s down to Colin’s direction, really. I like working with a hands-on editor.
