Jack's short story Rocket Ship Temple Blues is out now in Penumbric Speculative Fiction Mag.

​September 2021

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.
