Hurts so good I have to leave the country

Out later this year - Hurts So Good.

This includes 'The Sound of One Hand Clapping', which I think out of all the stories I've written is my favourite. It's a surreal, sort of stream of consciousness scene. I think it might be classed as 'erratica'.

Thanks to Alison Tyler for selecting it, and bearing with me while I made last minute changes. I think I was underwater when I wrote this. Maybe that's why I like it so much.

Now I'm away on holiday. Have a lovely midsummer, all. xx

Open for Business!

Yay! Edited by Alison Tyler, and out ... now, I think, is:

Open For Business, tales of office sex.

My wee short 'Rat Race' is tucked in here along with 21 other hot stories from lots of friends and esteemed colleagues.

Actually, wouldn't it be cool if we did have an office altogether? I kind of miss the 9 to 5. We could have a grand glass tower in Rekjavik and a receptionist, and everyone would turn up to work in their pyjamas. And I'd be out by the service entrance smoking tabs all day, if I remember rightly.

Nikki Magennis is

typing and erasing, typing and erasing.

I wonder if it's possible to erase more than you've ever written?

I'd like that.

I have nothing to say
and I am saying it
and that is poetry
as I needed it.
