When Dark Things Escape




Michelle Garren Flye and the other wonderful folk over at Dark Recesses Press have accepted my story 'Events at the Wigwam Rock Diner, Nevada' for a future issue.

Events is the tale of a girl, her dog Bacteria, eyeballs and a Paiute myth.

In other news, I have declared this week officially the first week of the year, well it is Chinese New Year on Sunday. I insist that you humour me.

It was my entry for the Cafe Doom competition - I submitted it to one other place afterwards and it got lost in the system.

Great news, Cate! Though when I read the last line I thought it said "I insist that you honour me."
