Curious Things Afoot
"This is a simply deceiving story, complicated and intricate beneath the humor and darkness. She weaves a strong web and populates the story with quirky and likeable characters" - you can read the rest of the review over at The Crow's Caw.
The second review is by Caroline E Willis...
"The aesthetic of this 40,000 word novella evokes theater and circuses and other strange, false places that tell true stories. It’s a cross between Gaiman’s Neverwear, Maguire’s Wicked and Vonnegut’s Slaughterhouse-Five, and if you enjoy any of those, you will enjoy the “Theatre of Curious Acts." - you can read the rest of the review over at Tangent Online.
I'm currently writing a little collection of flash stories/biographical accounts of events that happened (according to some rather dubious folk including a Mr. Folk) to some rather unfortunate and some wicked creatures who populate the outskirts and the dark unseen corners of the Theatre. I'm hoping to use them for a blog tour in December or January - thinking January may be better being that it is the season of frost and staying-in-ness and plus 2012 has that whole apocalyptic vibe going for it.
And that is all my news, I think... Ooh, except I'm venturing out into the world this weekend to attend a wee event in my home town and then I'm scurrying home to cower back under my duvet.
