Published short fiction

Lights Out With A Click

  • A story told from the perspective of a character in a computer role-playing game akin to 1987’s Dungeon Master who begins to question the rote nature of his existence. Published by CartridgeLit in their NextGen Temple issue on 11 July 2017.

The e-Shadow

  • Inspired by the Hans-Christian Andersen story The Shadow but with added social media, this story was published on the website of The London Magazine on 19 July 2016

The Veil of Stars

  • I’m very grateful to the award-winning Lighthouse for picking up this story for their twelfth issue in July 2016. Much less of a conventional story than my usual work, this piece uses space travel as an extended metaphor for dementia. Available to buy here.

Make Me British

  • Inspired by TV talent shows and the refugee crisis, and published by Litro in their Britishness issue in March 2016.

Now I Am Become Ken Burns, The Destroyer of Worlds

  • This story about the dangers of nationalism and nationalistic historiography featured a galaxy-full of space aliens and a predictably topless Vladimir Putin. It was a semi-finalist in the Broken Pencil Indie Writers’ Deathmatch in January 2016, which was a fun – if exhausting – battle for votes. Available online and also in print with a beautiful illustration. You should buy the print version and ideally subscribe to Broken Pencil. as it’s an excellent magazine with some fantastic fiction and the best comics I’ve ever seen.

Rain of Ashes

  • Something to do with death. Published in Tincture issue six. Available to buy from Tomely.

Real Charity

The Replacements

  • Aliens. Babies. Allegory. Published by 3:AM Magazine, on 28 March 2013.
