Our Transformations

in Sticks and Stones: The Oxford Flash Fiction Prize Anthology

"There was a sense, I think, that it was far too early for me to meet your mother. But in the rush of our passion we'd abandoned calendars and her beheading was days overdue. Would I be a love a lend a hand?"


Silver Birch

in Lucent Dreaming #6 

"She holds up her hand. Her tongue is there. Dessicated. He doesn't take it. She lays it on his desk."


The Incorcist

in The Ghastling #10 

"This is what Amy Shelling looks like now. Pale, dishevelled, her hair pinned down but wisps of it taken up by the wind. She has the weight of the last nine years on her shoulders."


The Bycatch

in BFS Horizons #9 (British Fantasy Society)

"There, bathed in the wriggles of the bluefin, a giant lay contorted. A hand the size of a whale tail braced in the top cinch, the opposite elbow crushing tuna in the nook of a lower bulge."



in Shallow Creek (STORGY)

"A chloroform pad for the mouth of Jack,

and a sealed-up shaft in the old tin mine.

My ghoul mask gives him nightmares forever,

but there's enough food and drink for three days."



in Humanagerie (Eibonvale Press)
