‘The Early Shift’ (published in To Hell With Dante, Martinus Press, 2014)
Written as a magazine submission (which never materialised), The Early Shift found a home with the US publisher Martinus Press. For once I managed to keep a short story ‘short’, and this remains probably my most focused story. It has a somewhat lighter tone than most of my other stories, but beneath the humour lurks a darker underbelly.
The book itself is now out of print, but the story will be included in my forthcoming collection of supernatural and horror stories.
