Next week, for one week starting Monday, I’ll be the guest editor over at the wonderful Smokelong Quarterly.

It is an honour. Smokelong has been about my favourite place for short fiction for a good few years. The stories they publish are consistently brilliant and interesting. It’s a quality place. I can still remember how thrilled I was when they published one of my stories.

So, if you’ve got something (which is less than 1000 words) that you think is particularly brilliant, why not send it in? I’d love to read it.

You can read the guidelines here. And here’s one of my favourite stories that have appeared there recently. It’s called ‘Pregnant With Peanut Butter‘ by the brilliant Michael Czyzniejewski.

Good luck!
