C is for Cabbage

Great news.
I am proud of being part of C is for Cabbage, a collection of horror short stories for younger (and older) readers. The volume features my story “The day we played at Middle Ages”, and I’m grateful to editor Emma Ennis for getting me on board.


This is not like the other projects I’ve been working on this year, as you can guess from the back cover:

In aid of Aoibheann’s Pink Tie, the national children’s cancer charity.

C is for Cabbage, a collection of 20 short stories from 17 truly terrified authors. Open with care, because the pages are crawling with fairies, lobsters, and strangely hip dinosaurs. There’s magic and enchantment, detective twins and drunken wizards. It’s got ghosts, ghouls, and lovestruck vampires; zombies, secret societies, and strange little men who tinker with toys.
With fun and frolics, and maybe a mild curse or two, (not to mention an extraordinary pair of knitting needles,) C is for cabbage is sure to have something for everyone, children and adults alike.

I am told the book will be available through the usual channels sometimes next week. I will post a heads-up as soon as the book is available.
You keep an eye out.
This book is special.

Here’s the cover, by the way…
