New Piece of Short Science-Fiction, "The Seam" is up at EXOPLANET MAGAZINE:

"The circular rhythm repeats on the first and last syllable of the song, and even though I know the call of the whip-poor-will is synthetic it still beckons me from my dream. Its song echoes off of the rocks and trees as the false sun dapples the top of my gray tent with perfectly replicated Rayleigh scattering."

ALL INTERNAL (novella): Interview and Review at GNOH:

"All Internal” is very likely to split opinion, many will hate it, but equally so I’m sure it will pick up many fans. Saying “I enjoyed it” is not quite the correct phrase, but it was never dull in any conventional way, and I was fascinated in seeing where the author took this off-beat story. David Cronenberg is the most obvious name-check, but I also reminded of Michel Faber’s “Under the Skin” and perhaps even David Lynch. I’m sure many readers will be heading straight to the shower, to wash away the filth, after getting to the end. A tough and demanding read for those who like their fiction to have serious edge."

Article on Body Horror in film: INSIDE AND OUT: BODY HORROR AND ALL INTERNAL

"Initially when I started writing my novella All Internal  I had been DJ-ing different horror sci-fi and horror soundtracks like Susan Justin’s for the sci-fi horror film Forbidden World or Andrezj Korzynski’s score for the psychological horror film Possession for my radio show DEAD AIR. This is obviously not a comprehensive list of the genre, but one where I tried to compile some of the influences that guided me on my writing and were films I was familiar with and realized they helped me out or pushed a boundary somewhere."
