If it’s good enough for Charles Dickens, it’s good enough for me.

Starting on Monday, my novella entitled You’ll Never Believe A Man Can Fly will be serialised on this blog.

What’s the story about?

The world outside your window has never known super-powered beings until now. The first is a man named Ian Davies, an ordinary man who’s about to face some extra-ordinary events in his life. But what if, instead of giving an interview to The Daily Planet, he gives an interview to The Guardian, a newspaper with a reputation for typos?

He wanted to be known as The Public Defender. But someone at the Grauniad forgot the word Public has an ‘L’ in it…

Described by one reviewer as “Siegel and Shuster via Douglas Adams”, the novella will appear, Monday to Friday every week, at around 1,500 to 2,000 words every day.

You can read it like that, every day.

And you can start reading You’ll Never Believe A Man Can Fly, with part 1 here.

Or you can buy the ebook (formatted for ePub and Kindle, just like The Twelve Days of Fast Fiction) containing over 54,000 lovely words, all in the right order and everything, at any point for £4.99, just by clicking on the link which will be both in the sidebar and in each blogpost.

      You’re going to enjoy this…

      I’m not using the artwork on the blog, but art I have permission to use may make it into the ebook…

      (And yes, I know you gave me permission some time ago… Thank you.)
