Will you be publishing a collection? I’ve consistently found your stories to be my favorites in both Black Static and Interzone, but you’ve so much else out there I’d love to read. It would be a daunting task to collect your short fiction from all these sources, but I’m going to try!
Thanks Jennifer! I’m glad you’ve liked the stories. Hopefully there will be a collection in the not too distant future, it’s currently out there and waiting for a contract. Don’t worry, I’ll definitely tell the world when or if it happens. Until then, there’s a new story coming out in Shadows & Tall Trees from Undertow Books, and another coming soon in the Darker Minds anthology. Hopefully you’ll like them, too!
I’ve just read Bloodcloth. Loved it, loved the way it was written- “The roller dropped and fat folds of bloodcloth spewed from the line like a thickened tongue…”
Thanks, Priya – comments like that make me happy all day long! 🙂
You’ve done it again. As if “Shark! Shark!” wasn’t good enough, I’ve just read “All Change”. The literary references are very clever without weighing the story down. I read it twice because you’ve got to get your chills where you can.
Thanks! I was worried there’d be too many references or they’d be too oblique, so I’m really glad you liked the story and took the time to say so. It’s put a grin on my chin. 🙂
Hi, Ray. While catching up on Shadows & Tall Trees I read “Night Fishing” and wanted to let you know I enjoyed and admired it. Profoundly sad and dark, but dashed with enough bits of humor and inhabited by people who feel real and leading lives that feel equally real. Some keen observations on loss and grief as well. I noted the line, “Jill had held him all the while, knowing about the churned waters of death and how there were no set tides, only a draining away that gurgled and spluttered and never really emptied.” Well done.
Thank you very much, Craig – I really appreciate you taking the time to say so. And I’m very glad you enjoyed the story.
