Hub News, South Literary Messenger Review

Following from my last bit of news, another repeat sale: Hub who published New Skin for the Old Ceremony last year, have accepted another science-fiction piece, this one named Exodus. If there's anyone out there who isn't already subscribed to Hub then I'd highly recommend it - it's weekly, it's free, and in only a few months it's become one of the strongest voices in the UK fantasy / sci-fi scene.

While I'm plugging, my review of Gary A Braunbeck's horror novel Coffin County appeared in issue #56, which can be downloaded here

Also ... I just discovered that The Living Dead is now available for pre-order on Amazon US
, at a bargain price of $10.85!

Finally, I stumbled across a review of the January and March editions of The Willows
that contains the following:

The most enjoyable story I read in the two issues was “The Facts in the Case of Algernon Whisper’s Karma” by David Tallerman. It is a macabre extravaganza about a man who makes a science of reincarnation merely in order to come back as a meerkat. What ensues from Whisper’s miscalculation in this project is a fine joke, gravely told."

Thanks to The Southern Literary Messenger for the kind words.

Strive to be Happy Second Flash Fiction Online Sale

Flash Fiction Online, who published my The Desert Cold earlier in the year, have accepted another story. It's one of my rare excursions into non-genre writing, a brief study of the end of a broken relationship and the beginning of healing called "Strive to be Happy." It should be out in the next couple of months.

Doppelganger sold to Chiaroscuro

A couple of bits of news: firstly, I've sold a poem, titled "Doppelganger", to professional web magazine Chiaroscuro.

Secondly, Eric Reynolds, owner of Hadley Rille Books, recently got in touch to announce that proofs of the Barren Worlds anthology will be going out soon. That means that the collection (which includes my story "Allotment") should be released in the fairly near future.
