Spooky Girl in Respectable Horror

I’m pleased to say that my short story ‘Spooky Girl’ will be appearing in a forthcoming anthology from Fox Spirit Books, called Respectable Horror, which is edited by Kate Laity.

I’ve admired the work of Fox Spirit Books for some time – a more recent British small press, set up by Adele Wearing, which quickly began winning awards for its range of interesting titles. More importantly to the likes of me, it has a reputation for professionalism. Kate Laity is an audacious polymath of wide-ranging expertise, and it’s always fun and enjoyable to be in her company.

So I’m looking forward to working with both of these forces for good (literature).
