Just a couple of updates.
The first concerns an anthology dedicated to the work of Robert Aickman, edited by Johnny Mains and due to be published later this year. It contains a mix of essays and stories, and I’m delighted to say that one of those stories is one of mine called ‘The Swans’. I love Aickman’s stories. I love that he doesn’t always feel a need to explain all the weird shit that happens. Reading one of his stories is often, for me, a bit like watching a film by David Lynch – you kind of get it, but you can’t explain what it is you get, exactly. Anyway, it’s shaping up to be a great anthology. I’ll post the table of contents as soon as it’s been finalised.
In other news, my latest column, ‘Less is More’, is now up at the This is Horror website. This month I’m looking at ‘The Snow Child’ by Angela Carter and you can have a read by clicking here.
