Story Takes Wing

Reading & Writing


My short story ‘Beautiful Men’ in the anthology ‘Visitants’ has been nominated for a British Fantasy Society Award, which is very vindicating as I felt it was an odd sort of fable at the time, and I can’t always tell if the odd ones are working as I intend them.

It’s a terrific anthology from Ulysses Press (despite the wrong headings on my story), and the story will appear in ‘Red Gloves’ soon.

    Looks like a collapsed Spanky. Not the proper reaction?

  2. Helen Martin says:

    Actually, those wings look to be connected to his (its? Her?) hips. I wonder if that would be a more feasible structure. There’s always the complaint that you can’t connect wings and arms to the same spot and perhaps that would help.

    That’s actually the new black swan custom checks being brought in now. No hiding contraband from a determined swan there feller!

    Looks like a fantastic line up, definitely one to get. The collection. Not the swan.

  4. Helen Martin says:

    Don’t really look like swan wings, Alan, more like raven or similar. However, I’m not terribly knowledgeable on this subject.

  5. Alan Morgan says:

    Oh, I go in and out of the country purely because of the possibility of a good swanning. But that’s mostly just me.
