Short Story Saturday: An Array of Audiobooks

I must apologise for the lack of blog posts recently, other than ones relating to my latest Kickstarter, HEOROT - Role-Playing in the World of Beowulf Beastslayer. I hope to start making more diverse blog posts again, but if you like the crowdfunding ones, there's another Kickstarter coming this summer. (And there's a clue as to what it might be about later in this post.)

Anyway, today I wanted to alert you to the fact that Judge Fear's Big Day Out and Other Stories is now available as an audiobook, from Penguin Audio.

The anthology contains all four of my Judge Dredd short stories in audio format, including One-Way Ticket that originally appeared in two parts in the Judge Dredd Megazine.

But of course, it's not the only audiobooks featuring my short stories available. In case you haven't come across them, here's the up to date list of all those currently available.

Features my short story The Hunting of the Jabberwock.

Features my short story Who Walks With Death.

Edited by Yours Truly.



In other short story-related news, I was delighted to receive this in the post today...





Kaiju Rising II: Reign of Monsters was published by Outland Entertainment in 2018, and I am very grateful to the team for sending me a slipcase edition of the anthology, which includes my Kaiju vs Mech short story The Ghost in the Machine*.



* It is particularly good timing, considering what I am working on at the moment.

HEOROT - Role-Playing in the World of Beowulf Beastslayer has 2 weeks to go on Kickstarter!

HEOROT - Role-Playing in the World of Beowulf Beastslayer has just two weeks left to run on Kickstarter, and the good news is we are now less than £500 away from hitting Stretch Goal One - the one that adds colour artwork to the book and gives everyone who backs at the BEASTSLAYER reward level and above a free print code for the HEOROT GM Screens.

What's even better is that Stretch Goal Two adds a completely new supplement to the reward-hoard of everyone who backs at the BEASTSLAYER reward level and above. Reading the Runes will bring magic into the game, including magic-users, and a complete, self-contained adventure called The Riddle.

And remember, as long as you back at the BEASTSLAYER reward level or above, Reading the Runes will be added to your reward-hoard without you having to add anymore money to your pledge!


So please keep spreading the word and tell all your friends why they need to support HEOROT - Role-Playing in the World of Beowulf Beastslayer on Kickstarter today.

And thank you, once again, for all your support.
