This month sees the publication of Premonitions magazine from Pigasus Press containing my story “Leonard Rom”. Considering the story was accepted back in 2005, this is the longest I’ve waited to see a work in print.
Premonitions looks nice, a gloss-covered A5 paperback of about 150 pages, and was worth the wait.
I’m rather fond of this story. It’s a rare venture into science fiction for me, and tells of a ‘colonisation’ star ship whose computers have become damaged and rather psychotic. It’s quite short, and so it feels compact to me yet also feels rounded as a story. I’m hoping any reviewers think the same. Watch this space.
The Ballad of Robinson Clyde - Alex's latest story *The Ballad of Robinson Clyde* is out now at Emerging Worlds. Its a lyrical kind of a story that put me in mind of J.G. Ballard.
