A number of my short stories have appeared online and are still available.

‘Endnotes’ in The Guardian

‘At prayer in the madhouse with Kit Smart’ on Liars’ League (text and audio)

‘From a dictionary of slang, circa 2050’ in Litro

‘Dormeus’ in Osprey Journal

‘Horse burial’ for the European Short Story Network


Pierre-MichonI have long admired the work of the contemporary French writer Pierre Michon, and Litro published my translation of one of his stories from Mythologies d’hiver (Verdier, 1997). I still hope to persuade a publisher to produce a whole collection of Michon’s short prose in translation.

Here is ‘The Lightness of Suibhne’.
