Released yesterday, 14 January, was Strange Stories Volume 1, the first in a new bi-annual series of fantastical, pulpy stories from Forty-Two Books. Edited by Daniel Cureton, the anthology is available in paperback and hardback editions only at the time of writing and weighs in at more than six hundred pages, across forty-eight stories.
Among them is my story, ‘The Dry Flood,’ a story set in Valencia, Spain and inspired by the tragic events of the great Turia flood which occurred there in the 1950s.
The story finds police detective Rodrigo Lopez facing up to a repeat of his only ever unsolved case – one which defies logic and points to something very strange happening, in modern-day Valencia.
I hope readers will enjoy it. The protagonist, in particular, is one of my favourite characters I’ve ever written.
