The Cruel Fate of Jared Shurin

As followers of this blog will already know, Jared Shurin (he of Pornokitsch fame) won a walk-on part in the forthcoming Pax Britannia: Dark Side. That walk-on part turned into a major role in the novel, as you can read for yourself later this month.

Last night I was very lucky to attend a special presentation for Jared's recent birthday, for which his wife had produced a unique anthology of works based upon a story Jared wrote as a child. I had contributed a short story, as had as author Rebecca Levene and editor-cum-author Jonathan Oliver.

Jared is desperate to learn the fate of his namesake in Dark Side but I didn't give anything away, tempted as I was all the same. And you, like Jared can discover what happens when the book is published later this month.

An absolutely brilliant short story as well. I can't thank you enough!*

(*All gratitude may be revoked if I learn that my namesake has been sucked out of a vacuum portal and/or eaten by space squid)

THEY ALL DIE HORRIBLY!

That's my go-to cruel fate. Great to see you this weekend! And I'm really, really, really looking forward to the new book....

Damn - space squid! Now why didn't I think of that?
