A dark little tale of mine is up at the splendid Greek literary magazine Στάχτες today. I thought it might be fun to write a piece that hinted at something strange and unpleasant going on offstage without explicitly saying exactly what. Which I think comes back to what Calum Kerr was saying a few posts back about conjuring the world by implication rather than description. I’m getting more and more fascinated by seeing how much you can not say and still say something.

Meanwhile, TAKE IT COOL seems to be generating some interest – including this tweet from none other than Ian Rankin:

You had me at Pinnock’s Paranormal Payback… Lovely stuff…

Episode two will be up tomorrow, but in the meantime, here’s episode one in case you fancy catching up. (In case you’re wondering, yes, I have changed the title – seemed more appropriate.)
