Off the Kuf Anthology Released Today!

I'm pleased to announce that Off the Kuf is now available from Amazon (see the details below). Not only does it contain a new story from me, it also includes new work from some of my favourite indie authors including David Haynes, Jonathan Hill, David Wailing and Rosen Trevitihick (use the search box on the right of this page to see my reviews of their work, all of them are damn fine reads). Not only that there are twenty other talented authors who have contributed to the anthology.

There truly is something here for everybody!

As well as short stories a collection of drabbles is included. For those of you that don't know drabbles are a form of short fiction where the story is exactly 100 words long. Regular readers will know of my love of drabbles.

My contribution to the anthology is the exclusive Imp origin story 'The Imp of Destiny', in it you get to find out where the Imp came from and find out a bit more about what the little devil is up to. Also included is the drabble 'Meet the Imp', the story that started the whole Tales of the Imp series.

So buy your copy now and enjoy some delightful tales from a variety of genres.

  1. Wow! Thank you so much for that information. I just learned what manga and splatterpunk is and now I have drabbles to add to the list. Sounds like quite a challenge to get it to exactly 100 words. But that is great. And thank you for the book review. I am going to check it out.

    1. I'm a huge fan of drabbles and there's some fine authors in this collection.
