Sobek’s Tears

Sobek’s Tears is one of my favourite stories. There’s revenge, there’re Gods, there’re crocodiles, and there’s the subversion of the Book of Exodus.

It was published in Aurealis #33-35 at the end of last year. Andrew McKiernan drew an excellent illustration to accompany it.

It was accepted a while ago to be published in Stephen M Wilson’s Black Eden biblical dark fantasy anthology.

It has since been significantly revised post-Clarion South for inclusion in my intended first collection, In the Heart of Midnight.

Tonight, it was accepted for publication by professional European magazine Nowa Fantastyka.

My work has now jumped languages – my words will soon be in Polish.

Another corner of the world just darkened.
