New Release: C.M. Simpson: Short Stories and Poems from 2013 - The Year Just Gone

The second volume of C.M. Simpon's annual collection of short work from the previous year is now available. This year there was enough work for two volumes and it spans the range from speculative to fantasy to science fiction to horror to urban fantasy and paranormal fantasy through a variety of poetry, flash and short fiction. Sometimes, she wonders where it all comes from; mostly, she just enjoys the ride.

Last year’s anthology consisted only of the short stories and poems published in 2012. This year’s anthology consists of all the short stories and poems that I created, edited or rewrote in 2013, regardless of whether or not they have been released. The tales are taken from completed anthologies, and anthologies yet to come, from my blog, and from my notebooks. Most are published as stand-alone stories, but some are yet to be published.

This year’s anthology is two volumes long. I have divided them up chronologically, according to when the stories were first created and completed. This is the second volume, and it covers work completed or released in 2013. It consists of a mix of poetry, flash fiction and short fiction, ranging in genre from horror to fantasy to science fiction and urban fantasy.

Pixies, unicorns, vampires, star ships, hunters, psi and sheer speculation of the what ifs, what might have been, and what might still be romp through the pages. Come and walk through the landscapes of my mind.


Both volumes are currently available from Smashwords in the major formats, but they will soon be available from Kindle, DriveThruFiction, OmniLit and in print-on-demand via CreateSpace.
