LATEST UPDATE: 19 December 2014

MERRY CHRISTMAS! I’ve uploaded ‘Tableaux’, a Christmas-themed short story which experiments with randomised narrative. Read (once or many times – there are 720 possible versions) and enjoy.

PREVIOUS UPDATE: 17 October 2014

Iris Wildthyme of Mars and Tales of the Great Detectives are now available to buy in physical and ebook format. I’ve added some maps of Mars as seen in my short story ‘Green Mars Blues’, and updated the City of the Saved Chronology. I’ve also added a biography and reviews to the Further Encounters of Sherlock Holmes page, and an overarching Sherlock Holmes page to cover both this year’s Holmesian publications. On this page I’ve rearranged the Fiction section and added the Wikipedia and ESF links above.
