Never Never Stories

Never-never-stories-cover-small Spaceships passing through the sky like endless clouds. A woman whose skin reveals the names of sailors fated to die at sea. A virus which causes people who touch each other to turn into crystalline trees. These are only a few of the stories in my new ebook collection Never Never Stories.

Ranging from science fiction to fantasy, the stories contained in Never Never Stories have won the Interzone Readers’ Poll, been nominated for the BSFA Award, longlisted for the British Fantasy Award, and printed in numerous magazines and book anthologies including Year's Best SF. The collection also contains new material including a never-before published story, a brand-new introduction, and an original essay on archeology and fantasy.
