Short Story News – The Skull!

I was excited to take delivery of #9 of Tales from the Magician’s Skull yesterday. It contains my story, ‘The Glass Dragon’ – in the final slot no less!

There’s a lot to like about Magician’s Skull. It’s a large-format print magazine, each issue is a lovely production, with every story illustrated. And for gamers one or two of the creatures in each tale are worked up as playable monsters. From my story there are glass worms, and the fearsome muck hag – my version of Jenny Greenteeth.

Magician’s Skull has a witty vibe to it – you can tell it’s made with deep affection for the genre (S&S). In a world of genre small press filled with nice people the editor, Howard Andrew Jones, is one of the nicest. He has been hugely supportive of my writing, encouraging me every step of the way.

If you do read the magazine and enjoy my story, you should know there is a sequel. Part two of ‘The Glass Dragon’ is set to appear in forthcoming edition. This is another first for me, and I could not be happier.

  1. I just finished reading your story in Tales from the Magician’s Skull #9 and had to pop over to tell you how much I enjoyed it. Great storytelling, worldbuilding – just the whole nine yards. Will we be seeing more of these characters???

    • Thank you! And thanks for letting me know, you made my day!
      Magician’s Skull have bought the sequel to Glass Dragon, so yes, there will be more. I don’t know which issue it will be in though.
