KeyQuest Published by Spaceports and Spidersilk

Saturday, 10 September 2011

The latest edition of Sam's Dot zine Spaceports and Spidersilk contains my light-hearted fantasy flash KeyQuest : a story for kids (and adults) everywhere who are always being told to stop playing those computer games and live in "the real world".
“Enough! You must set aside these meaningless fantasies, boy. You must embrace the real world."

Don't listen to them, kids!


  1. Nice one, Simon. For some reason, this line really stood out: "You can spend your life walking behind oxen. Would that be more to your liking?"

    The characters have so much personality for such a short piece!

  2. Charming, endlessly clever, and, as always, beautifully written.

    It's an odd thing, becoming a fan of someone you would also call a peer...but here it is.

  3. Milo,

    Thanks - and, yep, I liked that line myself. I guess it hints at a whole other life without having to go into detail. It's a trick I'm getting better at, I feel.

  4. Joe,

    High praise indeed - I'm honoured to have you as a peer.

  5. LOVED IT!!!Zane is a very naughty boy! LOL!!!

    Also loved the ensorcelled pearl! Try saying that sober! LOL! Take care

  6. Hey there fellow Fantasy writer, I found you at the Campaign. It's a pleasure to meet you. I am following you. If I listened to me parents I'd never be writing.

  7. Hi Laila,

    Many thanks for the Follow and for dropping by.

  8. Old Kitty,

    LOL! Glad you enjoyed it.


I'd love to know what you think.
