My short story collection, Rusticles, is out. Music played a vital part in its formation. Here’s a playlist that features some tracks which helped me through the editing process, some tracks I just like and fit. Eleven stories, eleven tracks.
Rusticles is a short story collection by me. Here’s what it is about:
In Hilligoss, a tired man searches for a son, a flamingo enthrals the night, and fireworks light up the lost. In these stories and more, Rusticles offers a meandering tour through backroads bathed in half light, where shadows play along the verges and whispers of the past assault daydreams of the present. Walk the worn pathways of Hilligoss.
Thank you to monkeelino for this wondrous cover. You can hear him on the latest episode of the Losing the Plot podcast here.

Near the very beginning
“She didn’t want to go there yet. So she turned and headed across open wasteland, into the domain of the sun and its cherishing death. She bobbed up and down and held out her white dress, spinning and drawing in the warm air. Her legs were cherubim podgy and she moved like an electrified hamster. The wasteland contoured down a textured valley which in turn vaulted into the distance and away. She stood in its open magnificence, its blanched earth under the blue-white sky of God. Everything in the distance; she would play unseen. She left her giggles behind her as she took off running.”
