New story: The Lost City of Emory Winters

trees-196x147

Something else happened while I was on holiday: My short story “The Lost City of Emory Winters” has been published by The Big Click. Their wonderful noir page design really adds another level, doesn’t it?
My story was inspired by two of M. John Harrison’s tweets earlier this year (“suicide note as a greeting” / “lost in the stairwell”). In a tweet-sized review Zali Krishna called it “entropic kipple noir”. Hope you’ll enjoy it.
