Currently at the procrastination stage on my novel – fortunately, though, that seems to push me towards previously unfinished short stories – two more done now, ready to go. On publications I’ve had two stories published since last I updated here – a piece in Strange Fictions and something in Zetetic: A Record of Unusual Enquiry. I’m smugly pleased with that one. I’ve got something coming up in K-Zine too in a couple of weeks – I’ll update when it’s out. Procrastination will inevitably lead to more blogging  – that’s good, right?
