Hello, (taps mic). Is this thing on?
Well, that summer was long and hot and yet over too quickly. (Time is weird like that).
I’ll be honest I’ve neglected this place a bit. Between settling into life in Munich, writing as much as I can, and writing my fortnightly newsletter (sign up here www.tinyletter.com/stevetoase) I’ve not really given this blog much love. I’m hoping to change that.
So here’s a quick catch up.
It’s been a good year for publications. Since June (when I last posted here), I’ve had stories accepted for;
A couple of publications have happened since I last posted.

My story The Flick of the Wyvern’s Tale has now published by Cameron Callaghan from ACDP in BUILT FROM HUMAN PARTS
I’ve also recently had an article in British magazine 100% Biker about the Rustic Racer Ride, a café racer show here in Bavaria.
Last year British Fantasy Society published several of my flash fiction stories in Horizon. Recently I found out Mask made Ellen Datlow’s Best Horror of the Year 10 Honourable Mentions Longlist, and was also given a shout out in the summation.
I’m busy behind the scenes with several articles, and have just finished the first draft of a novella. More on that later.
I’m heading back to the UK for Fantasycon and will be appearing on a couple of panels. Again, more on that later.
The big news is that I have a collection out with longtime collaborator Hazel Ang.
Ruby Red and Snowflake Cold: tales to warm the heart, is a distillation of my fiction and Hazel’s art into a beautiful booklet that gives a really good overview of the work we’ve done together. If you’re in Munich this weekend we’ll have some copies at Munich Comic Con, and I’m hoping to bring some to Fantasycon.
I think that’s everything for now. Have a good weekend and see you soon.
