That is ALL Wrong!
‘That is ALL Wrong!’ is out now, in time for Halloween! The last part of the ‘That is Wrong!’ trilogy of offbeat horror anthologies, we’re going out with a bang!
It features award winners Cliff McNish (Salford Book Award. Calderdale Book Award. Hillingdon Award. Virginia Readers’ Choice Award), Geneve Flynn (Bram Stoker Award. Shirley Jackson Award), Brad Cobb (Inscape Prize), Edward Palumbo (Poet’s Page Prize) and me! (Royal Mail Award. Aurealis Award. Doncaster Book Prize).
We share a space with both best-selling authors and less well-known writers whose stories are dark as Satan’s waistcoat.
A talking martini? Sure.
Vampire versus postman? Why not?
A deadly plague of sexiness?
Yeah, we went there.
I’m delighted to announce that 'Relics, Wrecks & Ruins' has won the 2022 Aurealis Awards for best anthology. I’m proud to be in it, along with peeps like Neil Gaiman and Robert Silverberg. More importantly, it was edited by my friend Aiki Flinthart, before she died last year.
She’d be well pleased.
