Pannus Mihi Passionis – delayed

Disappointing news for followers of the ‘Selwyn’ series.  The sixth story ‘Pannus Mihi Passionis’ should have been published in the spring edition of ‘The Terrier’ magazine.  It looks like it has been postponed until the summer edition.  The Editor says that it is a matter of space and that, as she really likes the story, she would rather delay and publish in full than try to edit it down to fit. I’ll post a message when it is published and after that it will appear on my website.

I’ve finally got around to adding further short stories that have either not been published previously in other media or were published but as unsuccessful competition entries.  That doesn’t make them bad stories necessarily (or good for that matter), just ones not chosen by that particular judge on that day.  If you want to read any of them please click on this Testbed link.
