Now on Curious Fictions

Updated: Oct 21, 2020

I was very excited this weekend to receive my author invitation from Curious Fictions, a great platform that lets writers share their work directly with readers, and I have now activated my profile. I'm intending to use it, at least to begin with, to showcase reprints of stories that have previously only featured in print mags and anthologies, or are otherwise no longer available online. Though, I will likely feature some original fiction as well. Two of my first pieces on there are the opening chapter of The Less than Perfect Legend of Donna Creosote, which you can read for free, and also one of my two published forays into Arthurian legend, 'Pen Dragons'. This originally featured in Flame Tree Publishing's Swords & Steam anthology all the way back in 2016, but I've shedited it freshly for uploading here. Speaking of the shed, that's actually one of the first stories I drafted in there - an influence that can maybe be felt in part of the setting. However, any rumours that I similarly use it for druidic rituals are baseless, ridiculous, and entirely... no, don't look in that corner. It's just a perfectly normal scythe. And a regular goat skull. It was like that when I got here. Honest...

Ahem. At any rate, I would very much appreciate it if you took a look, and shared the link with anyone you think might be eager to read. And just generally keep an eye on both this site and my Curious Fictions profile, as I'll be adding a few more tales to it soon! - Dan
