Auction of Blood

I’ve got a new story out today. “Auction of Blood” is part of Black Library’s annual ‘Summer of Reading’, and also ties in to my forthcoming novel, Eight Lamentations: Spear of Shadows. (more…)

Nu-World Knockout

18thWall Productions’ Cryptid Clash! continues, and this time out, Gav Thorpe brings the violence with “Conquest of the Nu-World: Ban-Manush Vs. Buru”.  As a newly terraformed colony world goes silent, a team of mercenaries and middle-management set out to investigate. But something is waiting on them. Something hungry…

Edited by James Bojaciuk and myself, Cryptid Clash! pits cryptozoological creatures against each other – and anyone unlucky enough to be caught in the middle – in a battle to the death. William Meikle’s “The Mouth of the Ness: Loch Ness Monster Vs. Kraken” started the series off, and is still available via the 18thWall Productions site, as well as Amazon and its affiliates.

Grab a copy of “Conquest of the Nu-World” from the publisher, or from Amazon, today. And if you enjoy it (or “The Mouth of the Ness”), be sure to leave a review on Amazon or Goodreads.

Bayonets and Chilli

It’s a new month, and that means a new short story available on my Patreon page. But wait – there’s also a new bit of free to read flash fiction by me over at Gumshoe Review. So you have options this time around.

“Murder is a Meal for Two” is my first attempt at writing what could charitably be called a cosy mystery – no ghosts or ghouls need apply. Just two quick-witted private detectives investigating a case of food poisoning that may be more than it seems. I’d like to write more with Dixon and Dorsey, if time and interest allows, so if you enjoyed the story be sure to drop a line and let me know, or even leave a comment at the site.

Over at Patreon, “The Bayonet” is as different as can be. It’s a nasty little horror story, about a shell-shocked veteran, monsters that may or may not be real and a racist bayonet with a mission. It’s probably one of the more unpleasant things I’ve written of late, so, fair warning, it may not be to your taste.

That said, it’s only a buck, so why not give it a try? Becoming a patron nets you “The Bayonet”, as well as a handful of other short stories at the moment, with more to come. Besides the one-a-month schedule, I’ll also be adding some free, patron-only content in the future, in the form of hard-to-find reprints of my earlier stories, as well as a few PDF collections for download.

Anyway, go check those out.

Eternal War

Black Library has released a new Warhammer 40,000 audio drama compilation, Champions of the Eternal War. With scripts by David Guymer and Ian St. Martin, it also includes “The Art of Provocation”, my Lukas the Trickster story, which appeared as part of last year’s Black Library Advent Calendar.

You can purchase Champions of the Eternal War in either digital or physical format from Black Library. Why not grab a copy today?
