Based in the (very) far north of Scotland I write horror and speculative fiction at the top of the map. I enjoy reading a wide variety of work with a particular soft spot for William Gibson, Neil Gaiman and Pablo Neruda. I plan to be posting speculative or horror stories every fortnight, with occasional literary stories sprinkled in. My interests outside of writing are music, walking by the sea and river, dark comedy and pugs.

My wife and i were walking the docks of Petersburg, Alaska, an active fishing port, when I noticed these bright yellow floats. I love the way their rounded shape and bright color contrast with the net, which is black and angular.
