Free Fiction: My Brother Bobby

On Sunday I wrote about my YA Horror Collection Cellar Stories. As a result I had hundreds, literally, thousands, crying out, "Show us something from it!" (It should be pointed out I have one of those mirror situations positioned so that you see yourself reflected to infinity in them...) So, without further ado, here's a... Continue Reading →

An Oxford Christmas Crime

I was driven to Kidlington Police Station late in the afternoon of January 6th, the night already closing in, and the snow which had started six hours ago finally easing off. It was one day after a failed assassination attempt on a prominent member of the Royal Family attending the opening of a new university... Continue Reading →

The Night of the Tittynope

Note: the following story was a four-hour challenge to myself written on Halloween, written from scratch and based on prompts received: Tittynope, Milkshake, Dollar, Glass, Chestnut, Gouge, Waitress and Loafers. I think I got them all in... Just a bit of Halloween fun - if you want stories which had fancy things like time and... Continue Reading →

Off Script: a new publication

Before my new novel comes out I’ve decided to publish something a bit different. Many, many years ago, when the world was younger, and the motorised horse was just born, I was a student. I studied long and hard (you can see why this is placed under ‘fiction’.) I studied Film and Drama – I... Continue Reading →

Bad Treatment

This is a story that I never thought would see the light of day. You might agree it shouldn't have after you read it but today I thought I'd share it. I dug it out when looking through old stories at 5 this morning, while thinking about the sad passing of William Goldman yesterday. It's... Continue Reading →
