Short stories




Available now from Amazon... I guess the title's pretty self-explanatory! Both stories are set between the events of Dark Blood aka Black Blood and Tristopolis Requiem.


NECROFLUX DAY
In a city powered by the suffering of the dead, Bone Listener Jamie Thargulis and Sister Stephanie of the Order of Thanatos struggle with their separate pasts. As the Tri-Millennial approaches in a period of civil unrest, can Jamie’s son Carl come to terms with his mixed heritage, and see the world as it truly is?

TRISTOPOLIS DREAMING
When Detective Sergeant Adam Obsidian calls in the death of the spike-encrusted Gambuccini brothers, he doesn’t expect to become the hunted, sought by his own colleagues in the Tristopolis PD. And what if he isn’t as innocent as he thinks?

...Enjoy!

My Inspiration

This is my wife Yvonne last Saturday, after completing her first ultra marathon.

And the next day? She ran a half marathon. And again on Thursday, Friday and today... which makes 52 races of half-marathon-or-longer distance in the past 25 weeks. (That includes 15- and 16-milers plus full marathons.)

At the age of 64.

And she's not a lifelong athlete. She took up running in her 50s, stopped for 8 years after a bereavement, and in December 2016 started walking every day to regain her fitness. And this is what focus and commitment results in.

So I'm not the fittest person in my household. Not when it comes to actual cardio fitness and endurance.

Can anybody spell "Wonder Woman"?

I'M BACK...


Whew. All is well. The main website, I mean.

Just truckin' along, otherwise.

SILENCE IS GOLDEN


A missing main website, not so much. It's a purely technical problem with my host providers, long-lasting because of the length of time it took me to notice. Not that quick to fix, either, it seems, which I'm of course not happy about.

Life continues, all the same. I've a novel in progress and a short story appearing in what looks to be an exciting anthology next year, of which more later...
