Received word last night that my story ‘Purify’ has been accepted by Neonbeam magazine for publication in their June issue (Issue#9). It will be available to download free as a PDF and to buy in print from Lulu.
The story is the first one in which I departed from the straight horror genre stuff I had been doing and attempted something with a bit more depth. It’s been a hard sell down to its lack of a concrete speculative fiction sensibility, and my struggle to find a suitable market to sell it to. Several editors gave me favourable comments as they rejected it, but I’m truly thrilled to finally sell it. I’ll post the links up when it’s out.
