Spot the Difference


Just a quick update.

I’ve posted the “as published” versions of both Diaspora and Degrees of Separation on the Free Stories page. These were my first published stories – shortlisted for the H.G. Wells Short Story Competition in 2013 and 2015, respectively. Click here.


I thought it might be interesting to compare the pre- and post-edit versions. I find it comforting to look back and see the howling errors I made in these early stories. Hopefully, I don’t make so many now, and I don’t rely on so much exposition!

Thanks go to Tony Scofield, over at H.G. Wells Short Story Competition, for digging these out for me.
