Flash adaptation / sketch performed by OMF Theatre on Liskeard Radio - Sunday 22nd November 2020


An adaptation of my flash fiction story, "The Pub Fight", which was originally published by Bizarro Central, was broadcast as part of the Barmy Nonsense comedy strand on Liskeard Radio.  The brainchild of OMF Theatre, Barmy Nonsense is currently being broadcast online and on 87.7 FM by Liskeard Radio.  I know OMF hope to get Radio 4 interested in it, which would of course be fantastic!

The performance can be heard below (starts at 3:33).

Reading tonight at "42"


I've been avoiding doing online readings for a while, partly because I spend all doing doing tutorials online so the last thing I want to do is spend another few hours sat in front of a computer screen, but also because it just felt like a poor substitute for the real thing.  However, as the pandemic - or at least the Government overreaction to it - shows no sign of easing, and as the writing prompt for tonight's 42 session was "2020", I thought tonight might be a good opportunity to read "Gimp World" (originally published at Horror Sleaze Trash) for the first time in public.

Then again, as it is online it does also mean people are no longer limited by geographical location.

"42" starts at 19:30 (GMT) on Zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/85774152824

UPDATED:  Now I've done a reading online, I think I prefer it to doing it live in many ways!  I can smoke, drink (normally I have to drive home), read while sitting down on my fat arse, and while you miss the reactions of the audience as you read, you do get a written record of reactions which you can keep for posterity (and to boost your ego, when necessary)....

Drabble published at "Horror Tree"

I somehow missed this one coming out.  A short drabble entitled "A Cerebral Vacation" was published by Horror Tree as part of their "End of Summer Special" back in the end of September.

You can find it here.
