Engine of Recall page added
I'm continuing to add to the site. This time, the short story collection
I've just added a page for my short story collection, The Engine of Recall. You can find it under the My Books item in the left-hand menu.
The success of this collection has inspired me to start writing short fiction again. I'd won awards, and been nominated for awards, with some of my short work--but, you gotta understand, nearly all of it was originally published here in Canada. Until very recently, American markets snubbed my short stories. I'd concluded that, if my short pieces weren't actually bad (some were obviously very good) they didn't in any case match American tastes. The U.S. and Britain being the biggest markets for short fiction, I'd concluded it wasn't really worth my while continuing to write the stuff if I only sold it locally.
Maybe it's because I'm now known because of my novels; maybe what was needed was all my stories combined together into one big indigestible lump for readers to buy; but now, I'm regularly receiving requests for short fiction from the U.S. I'm happy to oblige--though slightly bemused, too, by the turnaround.
