Some progress on various stories; Parasomnia is now finished, as is a second draft of We Are All Falling Towards The Centre Of The Earth. The Spoiler is now well underway – this story, hanging around as it has for so many years, is a definite ‘goer’, perhaps it’s just needed this amount of time for me to be ready to write it. I still have a list of other possibilities for the collection, so I’m hoping to be able to squeeze as much into it as possible – there’s an upper limit of 50,000 words, and I want to get as close as I can to that amount without compromising the quality. I also intend adding story notes to the Afterword as well as some specific notes about the Ballardian world we in the West have apparently chosen for ourselves in 2016.
