Ceremony for New Issue of Lost Souls

The next issue of Lost Souls Magazine will be online sometime this month (July) I, myself, have a novella for this issue, which iI am just putting the finishing touches to, called Ceremony. It's a new take on vampires, that's all I'm saying about it for the moment, but it's kind of like "The Lost Girls" (original working title!) instead of "The Lost Boys" in that it's about a gang of vampire girls. - 10/7/2011

New Issue of Lost Souls Online

It's been almost three years since the last issue of Lost Souls Magazine, but now there's a brand spanking new edition of the fantasy short fiction ezine up and online, featuring two of my own stories, A Fish Out of Water and Consumed, and also an article about vampire movies, which I wrote in 2004, but which I have now revised and brought bang up to date with the current crop of vampire-ness onscreen. - 15/4/2011

New Look and Name Change

As you’ve probably noticed my page has had a bit of a spring clean and a name change, I maybe changing the address soon as this is listed as Angels and Devils and now it’s called Personal Demons, and I want a more author friendly url than “chainsawhell” that I have now haha!   - 27/3/11

Lost Souls Returns!!

Lost Souls Magazine is returning in April, after an absence of around three years. So, if your thinking of submitting short fiction for this issue you’ll have to get your skates on and email me them as soon as possible, preferably before the end of March, but I’ll accept all submissions of merit after that date if I’ve time to read and add them to the issue! I intend to bring it out quarterly from now on, April, July, October (just in time for Halloween!) and January. Thanks for the continuing support that Lost Souls has had over the years, I couldn’t do it without you!  - 27/3/11
