I just sold a story to Mad Scientist Journal!
Even more exciting news if you liked my novel “Driving Ambition”:
It’s the direct prequel story that I’ve mentioned a few times, covering Liz’s backstory and the unexpected role she plays in the development of sentience among Things.
Not saying any more– but you’ll be able to read it yourself towards the end of the year.
Just a quick note to say that Best Of British SF 2018 is now available to preorder on Kindle (ahead of the wider release next month)– buy it and enjoy my story “Doomed Youth”, a tale of populist politicians and giant ants.
Another day, another format! Driving Ambition is now available as an audiobook. You can listen to it here.
My giant-ant short story, “Doomed Youth,” published in Interzone 278, will be reprinted in Newcon Press’ Best of British 2018 collection! You can preorder it at the link.
From this month’s Short Fiction reviews in Locus:
“I especially want to highlight an alternate-history piece by Fiona Moore: ‘‘Every Little Star’’ imagines an alternate timeline of space travel where Ludmilla Kovalenko was the first human launched into space (but not successfully returned). She inspired breakthroughs in both technology and the gender barrier, and Captain Evangeline Artemisia Quelch (Artie) is a former space pilot now commanding a moon base, although she still has to deal with the condescendingly sexist press. Her heroic exploits have left her with lingering claustrophobia, and she is now somewhat uneasily settled into a desk job; a friend’s invention of a kind of rudimentary VR reopens her horizons. It’s a great story, well thought out and well dramatized.”
If you haven’t read it yet, you can do so for free here.
My latest academic article, “‘National culture’ as an integrating agent in the post-acquisition organisation” is now available online in advance of publication in International Journal of Human Resource Management.
You can read it at the link here.
