A From The Waste Land anthology is on the way!


I'm super excited to share that I have a story in an upcoming anthology of speculation fiction stories inspired by TS Eliot's The Waste Land.


Published 100 years ago in October 1922, The Waste Land has become a masterpiece of modernism; it's a poem that reaches back into legend and forward into dystopia. Now, 100 years later, 19 authors have come together to write stories inspired from lines in Eliot's poem to mark the centenary of The Waste Land's publication. And if that's not enough to whet your interest, check out this table of contents:
