Tales from a Barren Rock

Phew! I just beat the deadline for submitting a humorous personal essay for anthology Tales from a Barren Rock. I’m very fond of barren rocks so thanks to editor Roger Medcalf for inviting me to contribute!

Meanwhile, I just read the editors’ final proof of the Hong Kong Writer’s Circle‘s 2021 anthology After the Storm and was tickled to discover they had changed the name of my fictional story back from Storm Troupers to my original suggestion of Shitstorm. I can’t decide whether having ‘shit’ inserted in the title of your story by editors is hilarious or my cue to find something else to do! 🤣 The anthology will be published and launched at the Hong Kong International Literary Festival Nov 12.
