My Lovecraftian story


My Christmassy weird tale ‘The Yule Log’ has now appeared in The Lovecraft Ezine. My thanks to editor Mike Davis for including it and for the kind comments I’ve already received from readers. I’m excited about this because it’s a long time since I’ve written a short story and it didn’t come easy! It’s set in Edwardian Ireland and mixes some fairylore with the Lovecraftian themes of the Deep Ones and Cthulhu and is just a little bit tongue-in-cheek…

If you’re interested in reading it, it’s up online at:

You can also download a free PDF of the mag or buy a version for Kindle or Nook for a very modest 99c (about 70p) from the main site

The Lovecraft Ezine is an excellent showcase of new weird fiction and I must admit I feel a mite intimidated by the quality of some of the writing I’ve enjoyed in it over the past few months. That won’t stop me from submitting another one, though!
