I do love writing my short stories, and seeing them published in anthology magazines is a buzz beyond description.
"Pulp Modern" is an anthology magazine I've been reading with rapture for years now. The editor, Alec Cizak, curates a publication that both garners great authors and stories as well as standing firm in supporting freedom of expression. Whilst I've loved reading "Pulp Modern" over the years, I've hankered for a berth in its line-up.
Et voilà! My story, "Beelzebub's Bird" appears in this special issue volume. The story has a horror twist with a distinctly Aussie backdrop, so not my usual hard-boiled crime stuff.
I was invited to do a story version of a short film, "Cocky", with the screenplay written by Aaron McJames and Darren Casey. It was an incredibly fun project, and I do hope you like the end result.
Let's put it this way...the next time you see a sulphur-crested cockatoo, it'll have you thinking!
