I am delighted to report that my short story Crunch has sold to Ballista (Flapjack Press) and is scheduled for their September 09 issue. You can subscribe here for the UK and here for International.
Crunch is a dark SF story I wrote last year and set in a world where no one is quite sure what’s going on. It marks the first in a series of conscious efforts to “open a vein” into the story and is one of my most heavily revised pieces to date. I believe it’s a significant improvement on my previously published stories and I hope you like it.
Thanks to those who took a look at it in progress – you know who you are.
Congrats Neil. I’ve heard of Ballista but not read it. God news for the start of the year.
Mazel Tov! What a fantastic piece of news to kickstart the year – hope it’s the first of many more!
congratulations Neil! Thats fantastic news and I hope 2009 is filled with many more publications.
By the way – bring back columbo!
