Or even did -- slip him the fiver for the paperback, that is!

God, that beer must have been good. Still incoherent 24 hours on...

Hey - great to chat to you on Saturday Colin!
I had to leave Saturday night as I was feeling ill, (hadn't really recovered from partying in Hong Kong :>) Shame really as I would have loved to be there for the Sunday too. Newcon4 in the old fish market was certainly an enjoyable event!

Hi Ally,

It was good to talk to you as well! I'd have liked to have spent longer there but unfortunately it wasn't possible. Ah well, there's always next year...

Congrats again on the success of 'Bull Running.'

Colin

I'm organizing an evening of ghosts stories ...near the lonely moors of South Yorkshire. A little late in mentioning it due to unforseen circumstances but if anyone would like to come along. :)

Gary McMahon will be reading two stories - one of which will be
‘A Stillness in the Air’ from HOW TO MAKE MONSTERS. He has, of course written, too many good books to mention here, but RAIN DOGS and DIRTY PRAYERS are two of them.

Really pleased to announce that John Travis has agreed to read a story that was published in All Hallows a few years ago, called ‘Networking’ set in Whitby!

John Travis is a fine writer and will be soon appearing in BRITISH INVASION with Ramsey Campbell, Joel Lane and Gary Fry. Besides ALL HALLOWS he has appeared in many excellent publications such at THE HUMDRUMMING BOOKS OF HORROR.

Allyson Bird’s contribution will be ‘Hunter’s Moon’ and ‘Medium Strange’ from BULL RUNNING FOR GIRLS.

Saturday 25th October
7.30p.m.
Free entry
The venue is Rafters Bar
The Wagon and Horses
Penistone
Sheffield

Directions

From the South:
Leave the M1 at Juntion 35a and follow the A616 towards Manchester
Cross the large roundabout and continue on the A616
At the top of the hill take the slip road and turn left on the A629 towards Penistone and Wortley
Go through Wortley (beware tight narrow bends) and Thurgoland, and just before leaving Thurgoland take the B6462 to Oxspring (small road that drops steeply away to the left)
The Waggon and Horses is just on the left as you enter Oxspring.

From the North:
Leave the M1 at Junction 37 and follow the A628 towards Penistone
Continue through Silkstone and up the very large hill
Just over the brow of the hill, turn left at the roundabout onto the A629
When you reach the Travellers Inn (pub on the left hand side), turn right down the hill into Oxspring
At the T junction the Waggon and Horses is slightly to the right, almost in front of you.

From the West:
From the M67 from Manchester, follow the A628 over the Woodhead Pass.
Continue along the A628 towards Barnsley
Travel through Thurlstone and into Penistone
Turn right at the traffic lights by the White Heart pub up into the centre of Penistone
Turn left before the Rose & Crown, down the hill past the church, and follow the road out of Penistone and into Oxspring.
The Waggon and Horses is on the right just before you leave the village.

The venue was perfect for ghost story reading. I find that the more writers get out there and talk about what horror fiction means to them the more preconceptions are put to one side. We talked to people who don't usually think that they read horror. Everyone had fun and it was great that Gary and John came from quite a long way away on a stormy evening. :D

Gary McMahon's report of it is here.

Short and sweet! I'll admit, I kind of guessed where it was going half way through, but the ending was still a welcome surprise. Glad I took the time to read it; thanks for sharing :)

Speaking of short and sweet, I have a story up in the new issue of Bewildering Stories:
http://www.bewilderingstories.com/issue312/14.08.html
It's pretty short, and it's free!
If you find the time to read it, I'd love to know what you thought, good or bad.

Interesting, Foxie. Took me two read throughs to "get" it, but I enjoyed it both times because it flowed pretty well. Not exactly a cheerful piece, though :wink:

A collection of my stories, titled "Sparks", has been published by Golden Acorn Press (the same nice guys who publish OG's Speculative Fiction magazine) and has been launched today. It is available from Amazon.
