Bards and Sages Quarterly, April 2014


So it's finally out, a story I wasn't sure would ever see the light of day but remain forever locked away in a dark drawer because it was a bit too, well, you know, weirdy-fun?  Instead, it was picked up by Bards and Sages Quarterly the sixth time I subbed it.

The story of which I speak is A Moveable Buffet,  my humorous piece set in a swank restaurant in Paris in 2029, which features 3 human law enforcers - a Frenchman, an American, and an Aussie - as well as a colourful alien from a distant galaxy. There is international crime, a mystery, a spot of action, and possibly... well, you'll have to read it to find out more.

Presently, you can procure e-copies by either popping over to Amazon or Smashwords.

I hope you enjoy it.

Aaaah, I love the smell of a new publication in the morning.

Thank you, Steve. Publication is what it's all about. Well, almost :)

Congratulations. I've sort of got my new Sony eReader under control and I'll try to buy it to download to the devilish device.

I'm a bit surprised it took six submissions to get this funny story into print. I enjoyed it! The ending was a bit of a surprise and left me wondering what they'd get up to together.

Thank you, Catherine, both for the congrats and the purchase.

Perhaps an exorcism of some sort might fix the e-Reader?

Thank you, Anon - I'm truly glad you enjoyed it. I loved writing it, and was quite disappointed each time it was rejected. I thought it was a case of me having too much fun and losing sight of what readers would enjoy :)
