Out Now – Piece Number 7

I’m very pleased to announce that my latest story, Piece Number 7, is now up on Garbled Transmissions. Piece Number 7 is difficult to classify (at least for me). The best I can come up with is magical realism but I’m hopeless with labels. It’s a pretty old story, I completed it on February 19th, 2006, but because of its length (close to 14,000 words) it was really hard to find markets to submit it to. I’ve always had a soft spot for this particular story so a big thank you to James Payne at Garbled Transmissions for publishing it. I did my first writing of 2013 yesterday, my first writing in a couple of months actually. I started a new story, currently untitled, set on Mars. I got 686 words in before I decided I wasn’t happy with the direction it was going and stopped. This morning I lay in bed mulling over the plot and found a new direction that feels much better. Now I need to find some time this evening to continue writing and get some momentum going.

Out Now – Hidden

Just a quick note that my new story – Hidden – is now up at Every Day Fiction. It’s a little bit of a departure for me because there aren’t really any speculative fiction elements but it’s actually one of my favourite stories. I hope you enjoy it and I’d welcome any comments you have, either here or on the Every Day Fiction site. [Philip Harris]

Out Now – On the Finding of the Body

Philip HarrisOut Now, Publications, WebsitesLeave a Comment

My Who Killed Amanda Palmer? inspired piece, On the Finding of the Body is now up on Brown God. I call it a “piece” rather than a story because it’s more poem than prose but I don’t know that I’d go as far as to say it actually is a poem. I originally wrote it intending to submit it to a website built around Amanda Palmer’s Who Killed…? album but I never did. It languished on my hard drive for months until I eventually started submitting it. Brown God was the second market I sent it to and I think it fits the site very well.
