Jo, if you had a TV you'd know that "Will & Grace" is no longer on. And I miss it so :(

No Will & Grace? That's just mean.

I did spend a lot of time humming his theme tune, but no. He wasn't an "inspiration".

I have a small publishing company that is mainly (at this point) bringing out re-issues of my previously published work in ebooks.

As of yesterday, I have my entire Lycan Blood series out and I have brought out a book by Susie Hawes called Dragon Creed.

I'm willing to give out free ebooks to any of the regulars here so that you can a) review b) reject and c) tell me I'm a loony with no skills.

Don't worry, I'm tough (I think).

In the interests of self-pimpage:

The podcast of Half-Breed is up on Cossmass Infinities episode 5 and read by Paul W Campbell, who has a lovely voice. (I'm not just saying that.) If you enjoy it, you might like to know it first appeared in Twisted Tongue, Issue 11, which is available in hardcopy or pdf formats.

My short SF story 'Emerging Markets' has just been accepted for publication in The Cynic Online Magazine. That'll be my 10th published short story, which I'm pretty pleased about!

My short story 'How to Play Four-Dimensional Chinese Checkers, and Win' has just been published online by Obverse Books as a teaser for their forthcoming Iris Wildthyme anthology 'Iris: Abroad'.
http://www.obversebooks.co.uk/catalogue/ia.html
For those who don't know, Iris WIldthyme is a sort of postmodern gin-sodden female version of Doctor Who, only instead of travelling around space and time in a police box she gads about in a London routemaster bus. Oh, and her companion is an animated stuffed toy panda bear who just happens to sound a bit like Noël Coward. She was created by Paul Magrs, and has appeared in various official Doctor Who spin-offs (as well as her own series), though not on telly...yet. More details at http://www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iris_Wildthyme

Hey Guys,

I've been learning the ropes now for a little over two years, and for someone like me who dropped out of school at 15. I found it very hard to grasp correct grammar, structure, plot, even spellings at times, so everything basically that makes a good writer. I'm a fast learner though, and I've learned so much about writing these past few years.

So now to brag..lol

Within the past 4 months, I've gotten 51 stories accepted for 23 different anthologies by small presses in America. They are Pill Hill Press, Wicket East Press, Static Movement, Living Dead Press, and NorGus Press.
I know I still have a long way to go to be at the level of probably everyone here, but hopefully one day I will.

If any of you happen to read any of the anthologies by the publishers above, and read my work, I would welcome any feedback, good or bad.

Thank you for taking the time to read this, and if you get the chance to read my work, I hope you enjoy it.


P.S. I will be submitting my first piece to Black Static within the next few days. Keep your fingers crossed for me.. ;) lol

Happy to have a review in from Norm Partridge and the following blurb as a result.


"Allyson Bird's WINE AND RANK POISON is a potent brew indeed. It's a choice bottle aged with old gods and ghosts in a cellar long forgotten, and it's chilled by the expert hand of a writer who understands horror, and magic, and the dark tunnels that wait between. Watch out for this one. Savor it... and drain it dry at your own risk."

'Norman Partridge has published a pair of critically acclaimed suspense novels featuring ex-boxer Jack Baddalach for Berkley Prime Crime (Saguaro Riptide and The Ten-Ounce Siesta), comics for Mojo and DC, and a series novel (The Crow: Wicked Prayer) which was adapted for the screen. His award-winning collections include Mr. Fox and Other Feral Tales and The Man with the Barbed-Wire Fists. Partridge’s latest novel, Dark Harvest, was chosen by Publishers Weekly as one of the 100 Best Books of 2006.'

Also one from Jonathan Maberry who has finished reading WARP.

"The stories in Allyson Bird's WINE AND RANK POISON draw us into a world of dark magic, infinite possibility and abiding terror; and she does it with a style reminiscent of Shirley Jackson and Robert Bloch. Highly recommended.” -NY Times bestseller Jonathan Maberry, author of ROT & RUIN and THE DRAGON FACTORY.

Paperback to follow.

Nice work. As far as literary parentage goes, not a bad lovechild to be :D

I'm reading your Bull Running as a book I want to read in between books I have to read, really enjoying it. I'll write more when I've finsihed...
