Use Only As Directed - may contain traces of 'Always Falling Up'

Use Only As Directed, the latest anthology edited by Simon Petrie and Edwina Harvey is out now, featuring stories from some of the best genre authors from Australia and New Zealand. I'm in there too.

'Always Falling Up' is a heartwarming tale of consciousness transfer where nothing ever goes wrong and everyone is happy. That last sentence may be a lie.

Stephen Dedman, Dirk Flinthart, Dave Freer, Michelle Goldsmith, Alex Isle, Lyn McConchie, Claire McKenna, Charlotte Nash, Ian Nichols, Leife Shallcross, Douglas A Van Belle, Janeen Webb, M Darusha Wehm. 216 pages of crunchy goodness, all wrapped up in a cover by Lewis P. Morley.

Baby Teeth

I've been terribly remiss in not mentioning this yet, but Baby Teeth, the first publication by Paper Road Press is now available:

Baby Teeth: Bite-sized Tales of Terror

Edited by Dan Rabarts & Lee Murray
Kids can say the creepiest things.
27 New Zealand and American authors delve into the strange, the unexpected, and the downright terrifying things that kids say in this collection of all new flash fiction. From the mouths of babes come 37 stories, from the haunting to the hilarious to the horrific.
Leave the lights on tonight. So you’ll see them coming.
 Dan and Lee have put together some great (and scary) flash fiction.

Oh, you want it in ebook form? It's on Amazon here. But don't think you're safe just because it's digital...

Better Phones - now available on phones

StarShipSofa has been invaded by kiwis this week. Tune in to hear Dan Rabarts' Paint by Numbers and my tale of running aliens, Better Phones. This means you can now listen to Better Phones on your phone when you go out running, which seems entirely appropriate.

Thanks to Tony, Adam and the rest of the sofa crew for letting a couple of kiwis fly on the Sofa. What? Course they can fly. Don't know where you heard otherwise.
