New Publications for 2019

For a year when I was supposed to be taking things easy - at least on the fiction-writing front - I've had a surprising number of published stories. Obviously there's still a month to go until the end of the year, but so far in 2019 I've had a total of seven new stories published - making it one of my most prolific years to date. Of course, it helped that this Halloween offered a bumper crop, with three stories appearing in the week of All Hallows Eve alone. That's one of the perks of writing horror fiction, I guess. Interestingly, the first two publications of the year were under my pen name, Ian Steadman.. The name was then retired, and I hit a bit of a fallow period - clearly I was in mourning. Some of the stories that came out in the second half of the year could easily have been Ian stories too, had he still been with us. If you're curious as to why I retired the pen name (or why I used it at all), you can read about it here . My short story publications
