Here’s one way to cheer up your Monday – a couple of my stories are now up to read for free on the interwebs.

First off publishers Tor have bought the rights to reprint the title story from my collection Paintwork on If you’ve not read it already it’s a perfect chance to give it a look without having to buy the full collection – which of course you can still do if you so wish.

UPDATE: as one third of Paintwork is now out there for free, I’ve just slashed a third off the price of the ebook at Amazon (with other stores to follow) – just $1.99 in the US for example.

And secondly – following it’s shortlisting for the BSFA short fiction award – Arc have generously published Limited Edition for free up on their site.

So enjoy some Monday freebies, and let me know what you think when you’ve read them.
