Issue Number 3 of the online magazine Wordland is out now, featuring my flash fiction piece “Racing The Comet“. Edited by the multi-talented and all round diamond geezer Terry Grimwood, the excellent theme of the issue was “What They Saw In The Sky”.
Go on, have a read at it, it won’t take more than a couple of minutes to read. I can’t really describe the plot without spoiling it. Suffice to say, that the dinosaurs were around for an awful lot longer than we have been so far, which raises some really serious questions for those who care to think about it, like whether intelligent and civilised life is inevitable, and if not, then what stimuli or calamities might be necessary to give rise to it? And more to the point, what’s an archaeologist but a blind man groping around in a coal mine with dark glasses on anyway?
