The Princess has been eaten

The story in progress is currently under the working title of Princess, Eaten by Beetles – Regurgitated. (PEBBR) I’m happy to report that the Princess in question has been eaten, and over the weekend will likely be regurgitated. I might post an extract here if and when I find the end of the story.

Just in case I haven’t told you yet, I’m helping organise the Everybody’s Reading festival in my home town of Leicester, nine days of events to get the city reading between 2nd-10th October 2010. If you live in or around the city and have some ideas for getting people reading or just want to lend a hand, give me a shout.

Oh. And I’m reading The Third Bear, new short fiction collection by Jeff Vandermeer. Which isn’t published yet. I’m only saying to make you feel jealous…


Yes, I know I’ve said some pretty rude things about poets, but I’m thinking of signing up for I Am an American Poet, This Is American Poetry. And you should also because it looks quite interesting.
