Firedance Books is live

I’m involved with this publisher and their first offering is the anthology ‘Broken Worlds’. I have two stories in it under two names. “Steve Godden” and “TF Grant”. Check it out. The anthology is free to download for a limited time. If you don’t like my work there are fifteen other writers in the anthology, so there’ll be sommat there you crave.

And it’s free, so no-brainer really.

Just a quick note. this site has been moribund for a while, because I had to work out what I was going to do with it. I’ve decided to keep this as a ‘Writer’ site, where I pontificate on matters of interests to writers (or not…I’ll pontificate anyway, I don’t really care if nobody bothers to read it 🙂 — after all, we’re not exactly short of writing sites out there in the World Wide Wish-you-were-here )

I’ll be setting up an ‘Author’ site which will be aimed more at readers. That is where these announcements will be placed in future, but right now I only have this. So don’t expect “Read my book. Please read my book. Why won’t you read my book. I hate you. You won’t read my books. It’s a good book. Why won’t you read it. Please. Please. Please read my book. Pleeeease” coming to your inbox from here — don’t expect it from the other one either (desperation is never a wise selling tool|) but really don’t expect from here.

That is all.

Please read my stories, ‘Entanglements’ and ‘Chug-a-monkey’. Please. Don’t care about all them others. Please read my stories. Please. Oh go on, you know you want to. Please. I know I used a preposition at the end of the sentence, but my stories have been edited and everything. Please. Why won’t you read my stories. Please.  Please….sad face now….oh go on, please.

of Altered States, first issue out now.

See that looking back at you. That there is the cover of an anthology published today for free. Don’t you just love free as a concept: free love, free speech, free writing.

You may have to pay to read some of these writers in the future, so jump over the hoop and read this stuff for free now, while you can, before they get all big and famous and expensive. Well, anything is expensive when compared to free.

Oh…yeah…I’ve got a story in there too…um…a…well…look it’s not my fault…honest…it just came out all literary and stuff.

Does this mean I have to go to dinner parties and talk about books I haven’t read (except as crib-notes) and smile when somebody slags off LOTR for the 14th time using the same nonsense syllables they used the first 13?

What? It’s not actually literary, my story doesn’t pass muster with the braying fashionistas of the nursery slopes.


Anyway, go on. It’s free, and properly edited, and there are some stunning stories in there.

What on Earth do you have to lose?

Here’s the science bit:
