One Grey Eye


I’ve just had a story accepted for One Grey Eye, an electronic ‘Penny Dreadful’ available on  Kindle. My story, Eye of the Beholder will be available around Halloween in Stories From Another London along with other excellent stories to unsettle you good and proper!

Here’s a snippet to whet your appetite:

Eye of the Beholder

A wedding picture – mum sitting, holding Dad’s hand by the fingertips, a gooey look on her face that seemed completely implausible, given what he knew of their relationship.  Carefully posed that, to hide the bump under the short, plain, white cotton dress.  They got married in early November, and Bill’s birthday, today, he reflected grimly, casting a glance at a silent mobile phone, was in early February.  She must have been freezing, he thought, not for the first time, and marvelling at the back-combed glory of his mother’s hair.  Which once more reminded him of the girl by the cemetery.

He frowned and pulled out two almost identical baby pictures, himself a few days old, cradled in his father’s astonished arms.  A cigarette dangled from dad’s fingers inches from his infant head: amazing he hadn’t set light to the blanket.
