This is my "official" website where you can read all sorts of random stuff about me and I can pretend to be grown-up for a change.

Introducing Mindworm

As you may know, Stew Magazine unfortunately ceased publication in late 2016. I'd had 12 short stories published in the magazine - all of them beautifully illustrated - but that seemed to be an end to it.

What I didn't know was that the editor of Stew had commissioned a final illustration for my remaining story Mindworm, from talented Dutch artist Mei-Li Nieuwland. Mei-Li contacted me after the demise of Stew, and we agreed that the story and illustration were just too good to keep to ourselves. Which is why I'm offering it here as a free download.

Mei-Li has produced a stunning presentation of the story that would have looked right at home between the covers of Stew Magazine. As for me, I'm just happy that this twisted story of apps-gone-bad has become my unofficial 13th Stew short story. 13 will definitely be unlucky for someone. But who?
