Last month my short story A Brief History of Bad Men was included in Walk Hand In Hand Into Extinction – Stories Inspired by True Detective, edited by Christoph Paul and Leza Cantoral.
It is one of my longest published stories to date, and I’m delighted that it has finally seen the light of day. Last year it was longlisted in a short story contest held by influential British crime publisher No Exit Press, only to fall at the final hurdle.
Strangely, the story was originally conceived for an earlier version of Walk Hand In Hand Into Extinction, but never finished in time. When the anthology was resurrected last summer it felt especially satisfying to have my story accepted for inclusion.
