Another Great Review

Just been blessed with another good review from the British Fantasy Society for Spook/Spirit/Stone.

These stories have lived for so long on my hard-drive, hidden and read by only a few. It’s strange and scary to let them out into the wild, to declare them a finished version that I can’t tinker with from time to time. It’s great that people like them and it’s really interesting to get different viewpoints on them. I’d never thought of Jerome as gruff, but that’s one of the weird tricks of fiction, that things that the author didn’t intend or plan sneak into the narrative.

There are some more Afton and Jerome stories – three short ones and two unfinished novellas. They’ll all appear on Kindle eventually, but I’m making no promises over when or how soon. As for a novel, I’m not sure I’m clever enough to write a full-length crime story, especially in first-person present tense, which these insisted they had to be in. I’d always thought of them as fragments of the detectives’ lives, each just long enough to suit the plot idea.

The Spook and the Spirit in the Stone is available from Amazon UK, Amazon US and also in France, Germany, Italy and Spain. It’s priced at 77p/99 cents at the moment, so a real bargain.
