I received my contributor copy of the latest issue of New Writing Scotland the other day, containing my story ‘Mercury’. This was a more experimental piece, exploring time, landscape and permanence, loosely organised around my impressionistic ideas of the atomic bomb test sites in New Mexico, and the nuclear missile tests in Nevada, USA.
I haven’t been devoting as much time to my own/non-genre or tie-in fiction recently, so it was good to see some of my more personal work in print. I’m slowly working on a literary/fantasy hybrid novel at the moment, and I’ve got a couple of short stories planned, which I must get back to when I have the time.
