Drumroll please, before the introduction of the stunning front cover of my forthcoming new novel, The Lost Boys of Prometheus City, which is slated for publication with Leeds-based punk publishers Armley Press. The cover has been designed by Mick Lake, using an original image by Jack Hurley – more of his work can be seen at www.loudribs.wordpress.com. I’m delighted with it.

The novel has its dedicated page on this website here, where you’ll be able to find out more about the story, the characters, and much more.

Things wont fix cover mockupI’m going to finish my month of ‘a free ebook every day’ on a high, by offering you the second FREE novel in five weeks. This time round it’s the turn of my comic novel Things Won’t Fix to take a spell in the limelight. It’ll be free from today until 20th April. And then that’s your lot. I hope you’ve enjoyed, and taken advantage of this month of deals and offers. And if you haven’t read me before and you’ve found yourself enjoying it, why not take an (educated) chance on one of my other titles?

You can DOWNLOAD Things Won’t Fix for FREE from here.

The Gavel Front CoverThe penultimate title in my free ebooks bonanza is The Gavel, a novella. You’ll be able to get your sticky paws on it FOR ABSOLUTELY SQUAT from 11th-15th April (before, finally, my last title, Things Won’t Fix takes its bow, free from 16th-20th April).

You can find out more about the novella here.

And you can DOWNLOAD THE EBOOK FOR FREE from here.

Here’s what the esteemed reviewer D.F. Lewis says about the book:

“…this story again exemplifies the wonderful conceits and turns of phrase in Kirby fiction. I am not exaggerating when I say that I am agog at Kirby’s torrent of characterisation and of plot and place by such turns of phrase, concerning, for example, just in this story, speed traps and navigation systems and silence like an airbag and half-sheep and names like ‘Call me Ronnie’ and ‘Luke or Danny’ – and I’m only scratching the surface here. You have to read ‘The Gavel’ to fully appreciate what I mean in context. This is a morality tale rather than crime fiction – except financial greed is a crime when you infect other people with it even if they infect you with their own greed thus to encourage you to infect them in the first place. A concertina of crime. And free gifts like a ball-peen hammer to become a symbol of rough justice is yet one more conceit or miraculous turn of phrase with which Kirby fiction is literally teeming.”

MountebankMy short story ‘A Couple Rough Beasts Slouching into this Burg or that’ has been accepted for publication by the Exaggerated Press for the Mountebanks-themed issue 7 of Wordland magazine, edited by the esteemed Allen Ashley. Watch this space for more details of how to read the story.

Here’s how Allen introduced the theme:

Come shower me with your mountebanks, hawkers of quack medicines, tricksters, charlatans, illusionists and rogues. Bring me your fly by nights, street magicians, fakers and fakirs. Send in the clowns, japesters, carpet baggers and card sharps. Watch the cards carefully, sir, find the lady. Tell me your tales of barkers, wide boys and sly girls. I want to feel that I’ve out-conned the conmen. Dazzle me, pick my pocket and sell me a pony.
