Short Story published in The Society of Misfit Stories

The Society of Misfit Stories Presents... (September 2021) I am very excited to announce that I have a fantasy short story published in the September issue of The Society of Misfit Stories.

The story is Helix Intercalculator – and it’s a story about a wizard and a priestess who come across some unsettling truths about the nature of their world.

If you would like to read a copy then it’s available via and, and I think from the publisher’s website as well.

Some more about this publication:

The Society of Misfit Stories is a home for those wonderful stories that are too long for most magazines but too short for stand-alone print books. Whether you call them short stories, novelettes, or novellas, these stories are all of a length that often struggles to find publication traditionally. Each issue offers a substantial volume of amazing speculative fiction for readers who enjoy spending time with a good tale.


Four Against Darkness Graph Paper 20 squares by 28 squares

Four Against Darkness coverI have been playing and enjoying a bit of Four Against Darkness – the solo dungeon delving game from Ganesha Games recently. It is quite a bit of fun. The idea is you have four adventures and then randomly generate a dungeon for them to explore, enemies to fight and treasure to loot. You do this by drawing the dungeon on a sheet of graph paper. In the Four Against Darkness book the recommended size of paper is 20 squares by 28 squares. However, the free download available from Ganesha Games is only 15 by 24 squares. I am not sure why this is, but I have created my own graph paper using Word. You can download a copy of the version I have created in PDF format by clicking the link below.

I hope that it provides a useful resource for the game. I really recommend Four Against Darkness – you can also play it as a co-op game too.
