SCP Foundation – add your spooky stories

Today a friend alerted me to a website featuring spooky stories that the average person can add to called the SCP Foundation, although they apparently delete entries that don’t comply with the general tone etc.

They have been described thusly: “The SCP Foundation is a creative writing website centered around pseudo-realistic supernatural reports. The site allows members to author entries in form of reports and documents focusing on entities referred to as SCPs, which are objects whose existence would be considered scientific anomalies and often pose a significant hazard to human health or society.

If you’re still curious have a read of this.

Projects like this are fun, unusual and good practice, so what are we waiting for?

Short story: Sweet Sweets Emporium

I’ve a new short story, Sweet Sweets Emporium, out with LegumeMan Books who are described thusly:

LegumeMan Books is an independent press devoted to extreme and/or unusual fiction for extreme and/or unusual people. Run by the Brothers Gunther and operating out of Melbourne, Australia, our aim is to represent upcoming authors writing in the abovementioned styles.

We hope to form an ongoing relationship with upcoming authors who write in styles not represented by major publishers.”
