The 8th issue of the British speculative fiction magazine, Murky Depths, is on sale now. Shipping will begin this week and my flash fiction, Nosing with the Four-Stroke Kid, is in there.
As my Brit friends, Jon and Sarah, would say, I am chuffed about this one. I haven’t seen it yet, my author copies are in the mail, but I’ve seen previous issues of the magazine and presentation is first rate.
I have also seen work done by artist Neil Struthers, who is illustrator for my story, and he has a great Mad Max-Biker Chic style that fits perfectly with the Four-Stroke Kid.
The story is about chrome spikes and black leather and dirt bikes and over-weaning curiosity. I am hoping, after reading my tale, that you will never see another dirt bike or hear another diesel engine without thinking about the Four-Stroke Kid.
I’ll tell you more when I get my hands on the book. I can hardly wait.
