Here is the beautiful cover for Hero’s Best Friend, which will feature my novelette “The Masterless”.

The publisher says: “Featuring 20 tales, from 21 authors, the new anthology features a spectrum of sub-genres in speculative fiction, but all of them contain the common element of a focus upon animal companions. Hero’s Best Friend will be available in eBook format at the end of the first week of February, with the print version to follow one week afterward.”

“Small Change” – Story acceptance

I’m thrilled that my fantasy/humour story “Small Change” has been picked up by Strange Musings Press for their Alternate Hilarities anthology, which is slated for release early 2014. Set in Glasgow, the tale features a cheeky wee creature of myth – hopefully it should tickle a laughing muscle or two.
