Got a book out

Oh yes I do.
Collecting all of my short stories I still have copies of, they have been retouched and tightened here and there. It's weird reading some stuff I wrote nearly ten years ago and finding my style of storytelling is still very similar, but much less polished, lots of language that really needed the ten years of writing to make better.
So please, have a look here.
You can read the first page of ten of the fourteen stories in the preview. It's £6 + p&p.

It's called Lunatics and Fools because the stories all contain one or the other, plus it's a fairly apt description of pretty much everyone I have ever met, even if they aren't like that all of the time.

In the corner of my eye...

As I'm sat here, strangely browsing websites I've been to not five minutes earlier, desperate for something new to have appeared to relieve my boredom, I see something move in the corner of my eye.
On my windowsill, at eyeheight, something black flickers across. Now, we have a lot of spiders in the house, so I assume there is one watching me, but nothing is there.
Then it happens again, and again. Now I'm freaked to sit this close to the window in case some evil fucker of a poisonous jumping spider is waiting until my senses are dulled to pounce.

The shit my brain does to me is just untrue.
I hate my briain. I love my imagination. I hate that I believe my brain telling me my imagination is true. I love the stories I tell myself.

I'm just weird, let's call it true and say goodnight.

How will he find the time?

OK, I've been getting lots of those random spamporn emails. Yeah I know you get them too, that's why I'm not explaining the concept, ok?
Right, anyway, I've just deleted one that had the strangest subject line I've seen in a good long time - crazy zoo fucker.
Just a few things here - is it the fucker that is crazy? I mean, to attempt to work your way through a whole zoo is pretty out there, you'll have to give me that one. Or maybe the zoo is crazy, in which case - what kind of exhibits does a crazy zoo have? It's half lion half baboon! It flings crap in your face then eats your nipples!
Or maybe he's not fucking the creatures in the zoo, maybe he's dug a hole in the middle of the site and is pounding away at the concrete.

I want to know why my brain comes up with these, quite strange, possibilities.

And I also want to know why I keep getting Tranny porn spam - almost every damn day - did I sign up for a mailing list by mistake? Where's my Make your cock larger emails? No, instead it's all Hot Trannnys waiting for you.
Keep waiting.

Anyway - more craziness later.

In other news, my first comic strip is appearing in FutureQuake 9, buy your copy now.
I'm also putting out a book of my short stories - link to appear when I've seen the test copy.
