To his self-deprecating astonishment he's also been nominated for the Story South’s Million Writers Award twice without sending the judges so much as a thank you note. He co-edited the satiric transgressive fiction collection D*CKED: DARK FICTION INSPIRED BY DICK CHENEY and his debut novel KOKO TAKES A HOLIDAY is out now from Titan Books.

Know Me? Church Flash Deadline Looms

Know me? Yeah. You there, thinking you're all snazzy with your latest thriller plot. Bah. I invented thrillers so show me some respect. Or at least buy me a glass of absinthe. Grumble, grumble. Happy Birthday, Vic, you magnificent French bastard. In other blarney news, the clock is ticking down to Dan O'Shea's flash church-crime fiction deadline. Monday my paltry contribution IRREPARABLE ALCHEMY will up here and so will close to thirty other twisted souls sharing their little things. Until then enjoy your weekend. Hope it's warm where you are. Freezing and blowing like stink here. Take it away, Danny boy.
