Long time no see, Crimespace

Hello, everyone. Been away from writing for a little while. 


One of the first things I've done since coming back is to put together a collection of my published crime short fiction. NOWHERE TO GO features eleven stories of murder, obsession, fear and--sometimes--redemption, first published in Alfred Hitchcock's, Ellery Queen's, and more.

Cheers, Iain. I suspect Barnsley remains more likely than Barcelona! It's nice to upset a few of our supposedly superiors, though :-)

Best of luck with the writing - the shorts are great.

Hi Iain
The waiting can make you crazy. So I just keep writing.
I admire short story writers. I love to read them, I just can't write them.

Hi Iain,
glad you liked LOST or DROWNING MAN as it's called in some territories (confusing and irritating as this is). I came across some brilliant books in doing the research, including UNDERGROUND LONDON by Stephen Smith, LONDON UNDER LONDON by Richard Trench and Ellis Hillman and THE LOST RIVERS OF LONDON by Nicholas Barton. It's a fascinating subject (albeit smelly).

Iain, I love that picture you chose--captures the gentle weirdness of your writing.--Dave

Hey, Iain, nice to meet you! Just been blogging about Bullet - the editor used to live just around the corner. Now I find another inkie at the seaside! Must be something in the air.

Hi Laura. Death of Sweet Mister is one of my favourite crime novels. I've got Winter's Bone here now, and am saving it for the right moment. Am I the only one who does this with novels that I am really looking forward to reading?

Thanks for friending me Iain. I love Daniel Woodrell! He's in the anthology I'm editing. Did you read Winter's Bone yet?
