The Eibonvale Press anthology Rustblind and Silverbright is now available to purchase through the website. It’s a collection of stories with the common theme of railways, and it makes for a vibrant and emotional read through all connotations of trains, journeys, the past, and the future.
My story The Wandering Scent is set in a miniature village: a small steam train carries the children through an enchanted glade that holds troubling memories for the driver. It’s at the lyrical end of my writing and I’m really pleased with it, and with the company I’m keeping in this amazing anthology, including Andrew Hook, Allen Ashley, Nina Allan, Rhys Hughes, Steven Pirie, and lots of other great writers.
It’s been an amazing run of publications for me recently: my own short story collection through Dog Horn Publishing, Horror Without Victims, Kaleidotrope, and now Rustblind and Silverbright. Other stories will be coming up in Per Contra and Bourbon Penn, and also in the Best of Smokelong anthology due at the end of the year. Cooking on gas!
