Extremely proud and chuffed to announce that my story "Six Days on the Road and I'm Gonna Make it Home Tonight" will be appearing in issue 10 of Rudy Rucker's ever-excellent eZine FLURB.

If you've never read FLURB before, then dig in and explore its back-issues; there's an awesome array of talent to be found - some extremely cool names - it really is one of the best reads/resources on the web for that genre that was once known as Science Fiction. It's a real labour of love.

Every ish is special, but Rudy says of #10: "I'll be going for a rabble-rousing Election Year theme with an all-star roster."

My own story dovetails into the election theme, but I've come at it sideways, approaching it from a direction that I hope you'll dig. I'm very pleased with the end-result. Hope you enjoy it.

As well as being a terrific writer (and if you've not checked any of his work, then what are you waiting for? Jump in!), Rudy's an incredibly astute and intuitive editor who has a great feel for Story. And his blog is one of my favourite reads on the web.

FLURB #10 drops in September and I'm very proud to be part of it. I'll holler when it arrives. Meanwhile, get reading...


Warren Pleece and friends are showing their artwork at the Paul Gravett-curated Hypercomics Exhibition at The Pump House Gallery in Battersea Park, London over the next month or so.

Warren will be running an animated installation which includes work from his wonderful Montague Terrace strip (which I've mentioned on this blog before). Y'should go n check it out.
