It’s the morning after the events of the Midsummer Ball and the team assemble to discuss what happens next. Which is an ideal opportunity to drop in a rather obvious reference that’s been hanging around in the wings for a while. It’s such an obvious reference that I decided to check with my VWC colleagues […]
It’s been a while since I’ve had something in Every Day Fiction, which is a pity because it’s one of my favourite places. I did submit a piece a while back and got a “fix and resubmit” response, but I felt that the changes that they requested – whilst probably sensible from an Every Day […]
This episode concludes the exciting action sequence on the roof of Pemberley as we find out who it was who intervened with their steam-powered dirigible (and if that doesn’t pull in the steampunk readership, I’m giving up now). There’s also a slightly puerile sequence of puns based around a rude-sounding surname. Well, I’m not going […]
Up until last Saturday, the only evidence that I had that “The Amazing Arnolfini and His Wife” had been accepted for publication broadcast was one solitary e-mail from the producer at the BBC. Being the kind of twitchy person that I am, I was beginning to wonder if I’d imagined it all – that was […]
In this episode, it looks as if Elizabeth is about to suffer alien abduction, but not before she has had a disturbing case of double vision. However, at the last minute, she is saved – or is she? Early readers of this episode may have noticed a slightly longer version than the one that’s up […]
Got an e-mail yesterday from the estimable Kaolin Fire to the members of the Twitfic forum asking if we were still interested in continuing with the forum. This prompted me to visit the place for the first time for a while and I discovered that a new e-zine called trapeze magazine (@trapezemag) had recently started […]
I’d like to think that this episode is the first-ever work of fiction to combine references to H.G.Wells, Goldilocks and R Kelly. I’m not necessarily suggesting that this is a good thing, mind. I would also like to apologise for using the word “weapon” in a double-entendre for the second episode running, but it just […]
Here’s a nice surprise. The lovely people at Folded Word have nominated my PicFic ultra-short “Not So Much a Rough Guide” for their Spring 2010 3Cheers awards. Obviously, having got this far, I’d really like to win, so I’d really appreciate your vote. Many thanks!
I’ve always wanted to have an episode open with “Sheath your weapon immediately, there are ladies present”, and this seemed the perfect opportunity. Wickham confronts Alien Darcy and he reveals his true colours!
Here are a couple of TwitFic pieces on a similar theme, yesterday and today. Not a lot more to say about these really. Take ’em or leave ’em.
