Something Remains

I’m highly delighted to be able to report that my story, Fear of the Music, will appear in Something Remains, the Joel Lane tribute anthology that is due to be published at Fantasycon in September.

Most of the contributors utilised notes or scraps of a story that Joel had made but never completed. The results are hopefully a fitting testament to a man that was loved and respected in the genre, both for his superb body of work as a writer of the weird tale, and for his support and encouragement of the indie press.

Joel was one of my literary heroes, and was kind enough to read and provide a blurb for my debut collection, Peel Back the Sky, when it was published in 2012. He sad passing was far too soon. The profits from Something Remains will benefit Diabetes UK, a condition from which Joel suffered. Here is the mouthwatering table of contents –
