Spirits Gather

As the Mummers begin their revels, St George fights the Dragon, or the Galoshins begin the games, we begin a time of reflection for change in the new year. It’s a time for taking stock, making decisions — and who am I kidding? It’s a time for mellow quiet, good food, and peaceful recharging. There…

Spooky Day!

I’m knee deep in a writing project with a deadline tomorrow but! Halloween brings out the goodies from me and my pals: A new story! Number 13 is a little M. R. James, a touch of Chaucer and a whole lot noir over at Punk Noir Magazine, where they’ve also got Sebnem Sanders’ The Muse and Frank…

Get Chastity Flame Before She’s Gone!

Holidaze & News

You may guess from the infrequency of posts that I am extremely busy. But I have found time to enjoy myself, too. Pleased that the lovely QoE was able to visit and hang around Hipsterville AKA Hudson for the day. We had a lovely time plotting, planning and laughing. Flint and Steel, baby! Then there…

Magic & Moonlight

There’s a blue moon tonight: won’t be another for three years. If you can, get out there and howl a little. The full moon brings a little magic out in everyone — and maybe the wolf, too. I have a piece up at the Cultural Gutter: Strange Men and Magic looks at my new obsession,…

Happy Birthday to a Legend (or two)

I should be on my way across the Atlantic at present, but I have to be sure to say a happy birthday to a couple of legends today: Tony Hancock and Paul D. Brazill. They both make me laugh like a crazy person, so if you don’t know them already, you shouldn’t waste any time…

While You Were Out

Or I suppose, while I was out and about in the Big Easy with Miss Wendy and other folks (yes, write up to come) I neglected my blog. So a hasty round up while I get caught up — INTERVIEWS Hector D Jr interviewed me for Sliver of Stone magazine and I natter on about…

More Music Not to Miss

What am I listening to today? Here’s a couple of things. I’ve known Alan Savage for a while — probably a friend of Mr B‘s. He has a new collection out that captures the feel of summers gone by and even has some William Blake. It’s got me almost believing in the sun again: I…

Reviewed: Drag Noir

Starburst Magazine has a quite nice review of Drag Noir up that highlights the good work Fox Spirit is doing and gives specific kudos to some of the fantastic stories in this collection: One of the nice things about the small press is that you tend to find more original and clever ideas amongst them,…
