A Troublesome Speck

Tuesday, 11 December 2012

SF flash story A Troublesome Speck has been published over at Spaceports and Spidersilk today. You can read it for free here.

Lord Nebula’s three hearts pounded away in his upper thorax. Surely this gift would woo the Empress? His rainbow forests had left her distinctly unimpressed. She’d looked positively bored when he’d revealed the flawless diamond planet. This was his last chance. 


Meanwhile, I have some very exciting novel news to reveal soon. Stay tuned!
