Me in the Lovecraft Ezine

I’ve been having a go at writing fiction again and it’s been hard work, frankly. I decided to target the excellent Lovecraft Ezine, based in the United States, because editor Mike Davis regularly opens it up for submissions and the publication has achieved great critical success over the 15 months of publication. Also, H P Lovecraft’s crazy but highly influential ideas are always good for inspiration. A few months ago Mike hinted that he’d like to see some Christmas-themed Lovecraftian stories so I made that my target, coming up with a bizarre idea about an ancient lump of bog oak dug out of the peat on fairy-haunted ground in Western Ireland. I think I must have just made the deadline and am thrilled that ‘The Yule Log’ will be appearing in the December issue.

The November issue is currently, free as a downloadable PDF and available at a modest price for Kindle, Nook etc in a week or two. Visit for more.
