Jack's short story Rocket Ship Temple Blues is out now in Penumbric Speculative Fiction Mag.
Those talented folks at Penumbric magazine have accepted one of Jack's short stories. Rocket Ship Temple Blues is a spin off from my old novel Zen City, Iso and features some its characters but reimagined with a strong retro sci-fi theme.
“Dark comedy set in an artificial noir world (think Bladerunner meets 1940s Thailand). Palm Trees is an ex-monk who has had a terrible premonition and must find his friend Bob before it’s too late.”
Rocket Ship should be published in Penumbric's October’s edition.
Jack has submitted a short story to another magazine and busy working on a third. They also have speculative elements and set in a retro sci-fi Thailand.
Zen City, Iso off the market while Jack pens a few changes. The zany humour, crime noir and mystery will all still be there, but the Siamese world of Orson Plamer and his pals will be given a retro sci-fi twist. There will also be great new cover art by Larch Gallagher.
