Necrotic Tissue #9 Out to Buy

Since I can't come up with an interesting title, I've pretty much summed this post up already, but let's try and drag it out just a little longer, eh? Necrotic Tissue issue #9, featuring my story Caretaker in the Garden of Dreams as one of the 'editor's picks', is out to buy from the Necrotic Tissue website. If you squint, you can possibly make out my name there on the cover. I'm choosing to believe that this is the correct version of the cover, by the way, since the one in the shop spells my surname as Tellerman. Man, I hope I'm not going to have to get it changed by deadpoll...

Caretaker is a very weird, very nasty little tale that came to me in the same bout of half-awake delirium that produced the idea for my first novel, (which is extremely close to being finished by the way). I can't say too much without giving away the story, so instead I'll just mention what a pleasant experience it was working with the guys at Necrotic Tissue, who not only paid me more than I was expecting but did so before the issue came out, and even threw in a damnably stylish T-shirt.

Also, I now have my copy of the Zombonauts anthology, and I'm glad to say that it's a really nice looking book. I haven't actually read any of yet, (I'm still working my way through my copy of Theaker's Quarterly Fiction), but if you can't judge a book by its cover then what can you judge it by?
