A Review! A Review!

The Estate of Edward Moorehouse gets a review? This is a thoroughly modern story with Facebook ™ and SIM cards, but ancient evil has adapted to the new technology. The full review of Respectable Horror, by SKJAM, is here:- http://www.skjam.com/2017/10/29/book-review-respectable-horror/

Write about what you know

23 October, 2017 (00:30) | Dead Water, Writing | By: Ian Burdon

I’m writing a novel. I tried doing this a while back but got nowhere and instead wrote a heap of short stories, two of which have found publishers. I would be happy to stick with the short stories but, at the risk of being precious, you go where the story takes you. I’m not making […]

Juvenilia 2

8 August, 2017 (22:41) | Writing | By: Ian Burdon

Further to my last, I now have the files of my old blog duly converted into up to date code and even put into a better chronological order. I haven’t quite worked out what I’m going to do with them here but you’ll be the first to know. A big thanks to Malcy for both […]

I’ve mentioned previously that I still have all the old files from my original blog, but didn’t really have time to convert them to be readable by recent browsers. This was read by an old chum who has offered to weave his magic with the files for me, so that I can, in time, load […]

Apocalypse: we’ve all been there

13 March, 2017 (23:54) | Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Dead Water, Goggle-eyes, Writing | By: Ian Burdon

A couple of anniversaries have been on my mind: Rumours is now 40 years old; Buffy the Vampire Slayer hit TV screens 20 years ago. I’m sort of depressed in both cases that things so fresh in my memory have acquired such a weight of years. I have vivid memories of buying 3 copies of […]

So, I saw this today for the first time. I really rather like it.

Shameless Self-publicity

11 January, 2017 (14:38) | Books, Writing | By: Ian Burdon

As I’ve mentioned before, I have a story being published at some indeterminate point in the near future. You can read about it at this link. I know it’s getting closer because (a) I’ve had the edits back and (b) I got an email today about publicity when it comes out–essentially my role, amongst other […]

#should be writing

23 May, 2016 (19:47) | Writing | By: Ian Burdon

The story that was accepted by Fox Spirit earlier this year was originally written, in first draft at least, in summer 2014. It went through several revisions before I submitted it, but it is a two-year-old story. In the interim I have written a series of 11 interlinked stories that, cumulatively, come to 105,000 words. […]
