|Christopher Allen, Volcano Diver|
My fiction and creative non-fiction have appeared in many places over the last few years. Links to these publications are at I Must Be Off! HERE. Go have a look. Many of these publications are in online journals, so they're free to read.
What I've been up to . . .
My debut collection of flash fiction, Other Household Toxins, is forthcoming from Matter Press. Keep an eye on I Must Be Off! for details, where you can purchase a copy, etc.
While I was away in December, my story "The Microbiology of Laiq" went live at Jellyfish Review and was also nominated for the Pushcart Prize anthology by the editor Christopher James (thank you!).
My story "What Strangers Do" is live at [PANK] with audio! This one is not appropriate for children.
I wish you all the best for the new year.
