Writing

In other news, I actually (finally!) got around to completing a piece of writing I’ve been thinking about for literally YEARS and submitting it to ASIM. I won’t say what it is, because some of my *friends* are slushers for Andromeda Spaceways and that would defeat the purpose of the blind slush reading!

Got my fingers crossed though. It’s been that long since I wrote anything, it’s a buzz just to finish something to a point I feel it’s worth submitting!

Interesting Werewolf novel

I picked up Martin Livings’ 2006 novel Carnies at the library on Saturday, purely on the strength of the fact I’ve picked up a story of his for the ASIM Horror Best Of anthology. I finished it late (very) last night and while I really liked the story idea, I found I just wasn’t convinced by some of the characterisation. The character of David was really off to me – I mean here’s this repressed journo, in an unhappy marriage, career failing, family fractured, comes across as completely hopeless, yet turn him into a werewolf and he becomes a homicidal lunatic with all sorts of power. Meh. Just wasn’t set up well enough for me, given that all the other werefolk were quite normal. Having said that, I enjoyed the story itself, thought the horror and supernatural elements were great, and the ending, while a little contrived, was well done. Look forward to seeing more Martin Livings in ASIM pages, and on the shelves!

Broken boy pictures

As you can see, he’s feeling quite well, but the cast is awful heavy!
