Three Stories in One Anthology!

Writers on the Wrong Side of the Road

edited by Sassy Brit and CC Bye:

"Anything goes" in this anthology and I can attest to that. They've accepted 3 (count 'em!) of my stories, and they couldn't be more different than each other.

"Pronghorns" is one of my bleakest stories, about two neighbours who form a suicide pact.

In "The Cenotaph" a young man considering joining the armed forces in order to fight in Afghanistan (against his parents' wishes) meets another young man who refused to fight in the First World War.

"Triona's Beans" is a whacky story suitable for kids or really juvenile adults, in which, as it says on the WWSR back cover, "a teenage girl saves a world between first and last dinner call". "Triona's Beans" was written with Päivi Kuosmanen. It was originally accepted for Ahmed Kahn's anthology Fun Times in Strange Lands, which unfortunately is still awaiting publication.

The anthology ranges from speculative fiction to erotica and covers a lot of ground between. Definitely not your normal fare.

I'll add a purchasing link to this page when I get one. Meanwhile,
