Area 52: Arrival coverThe first draft of the first short story this year is done: though I must be honest and admit that I started writing it between Christmas and the New Year.

This is an idea that’s been lying around for a while, about a National Service soldier in 1950s Britain who ends up send to guard a military base in the middle of nowhere which is where all the strange things from around the British Empire end up; this in a world where pretty much every wacky conspiracy or strange creature sighting is actually real. Atlantis existed, the Loch Ness Monster really is swimming around Scotland, etc, etc.

I need to tidy it up, but hopefully it will be out in a week or two, with some more stories about the same characters to follow.
