Guardians, A Fox Pockets anthologyI’m pleased to announce the publication of Arabesque,  a weird flash fiction piece, in Fox Spirit Books’ latest anthology, Guardians.

Here’s a little teaser from the opening lines:


.     Hey man, you in there Marty? Open up.

     Oh, it’s you. C’mon in Nigel. Parched, man. I’m parched. Woke up this aft with a phone number on this hand, bandages on this one. Pocket’s full of money. No idea where it came from. I need water. Close the door, man.


Guardians is the third volume in the Fox Pockets series. Many thanks to Adele Wearing for giving Arabesque such a fine home.

The book also includes stories from Colin Sinclair, Geraldine Clark-Hellery, Jack Hanson, Paul Starkey, Alec McQuay, Jonathan Ward, Christian D’Amico, Emma Teichman, Rahne Sinclair, Margrét Helgadóttir, James Fadely, Den Patrick, Alasdair Stuart, Catherine Hill, and Chloë Yates, with cover art by Sarah Anne Langton.

Each Fox Pocket has a specific theme, but the themes are deliberately loose and the series contains a broad selection of science fiction, weird, fantasy, horror, crime and more. It’s fun to see the many different interpretations from the authors featured in each volume.

Guardians is available now from Lulu and Amazon, along with the other volumes in the series.
