On Mr Smith

I’m been working flat out on my new novel Red Claw for the last few months, and have made a remarkable discovery.  When I have far too much work to do, the only way to get it all done is to commit to EVEN MORE.  And so I took time out from the novel to write a clutch of short stories, and then found the novel was going faster than ever.

I don’t know why this should be!?!  Maybe it’s connected to the old adage of ‘Always give a job to a busy man (or woman)’.  Or maybe it’s simply that writing these stories – all very different from Debatable Space in genre and tone – fired up my creative energies. 

Anyway, the first of these stories is called Mr Smith, and I’m delighted to say that it’s been accepted by Andrew Hook of The Elastic Press, for publication in his short story collection New Horizons next year. 

Mr Smith is a tale of the extraordinary, set in the present day, in and around a South Wales B & Q. I shall say no more…
