"The Tracks that Tower over Valleys" has been accepted

Well, the cat is out of the bag with this announcement via Pornokitsch. I've been writing a flash piece for Jared Shurin and Anne C. Perry, the wonderful editorial team at Jurassic London, who have compiled a thrilling and  delicious anthology "Pandemonium: Stories of the Smoke" with speculative stories set in London. The catch is that they have to be inspired by Dickens.  

Now, my flash "The Tracks that Tower over Valleys" is rather different in terms of setting, which is why it will appear in the electronic chapbook with the minimalist title "Fire": 

We're also pleased to announce "Fire" - an electronic chapbook of shorter-short fiction. Fire contains three fantastic stories from three unique voices, all skirting the inflammatory outer edges of Dickensian-inspired SF.
