Having recently resuscitated my writing career, I am delighted to announce that my short story, The Murder of Crows, has been selected for inclusion in Unthank Books’ anthology series, Unthology 4.

Unthology 4, edited by Robin Jones and Ashley Stokes, continues Unthank Books’ celebrated series, drawing its energy from the wanderlust and shape-shifting tendencies of the contemporary short story. Its thirteen stories involve cats, crows and angels; moments of realization and moments of doubt; bad moves, wrong turns and trips across the border. A fire-scarred war veteran enters the domain of a coked-up yuppie. A blind girl wakes up to find that the birdsong has ended. A lad on the slide dates a cosseted schoolgirl and ends up teetering on a church roof. Safe-cracking stories by bold and stealthy writers.

The book is due for release on 1st November.
