Scritturamag ScreenprintMy short story ‘In the Mean Time’ has been picked up for publication by Scrittura Magazine. Scrittura is an online lit mag whose debut issue is slated to hit the shelves on 14th September 2015. You can visit their site here.

‘In the Mean Time’ will be my 134th published short story (for a full menu, go here). Here’s a very brief extract:

The knife in his pocket has drawn blood, piercing the fleshy part of his thumb. And yet he looks on impassively, waits as an audience is cut and pasted into the theatre around him. Regards the curtain that masks the stage with mild interest. Pulls out a throat lozenge with his unbloodied left hand; pops it into his mouth. Waits.

Kills time.

Kills it dead.
