I’m very happy to be wearing two hats for this project as both writer and editor.
As writer, Revolutions includes my short story Traveller. This is an unusual departure for me: time-travel. I am probably the world’s worst sceptic when it comes to this particular subject so I’d like to think that my story explores a new approach to how it might all work in a believable, if slightly cynical, fashion. No bootstrap paradoxes here. In fact, no paradoxes at all.
As editor, Revolutions has been delightfully hard work from beginning to end. I was amazed when all the submissions started to roll in, seriously impressed when I read the content, disappointed that we had to turn away so many excellent stories. My fellow editors, Graeme and Eric, proved to be the perfect team-mates, even taking up the slack when I disappeared off-grid for a few weeks to focus on my other hobby, kung-fu. I had a tough grading at the end of last year which I’m glad to say I passed!
I also want to thank Luke and James, fellow writing group members, who were — and are still — busy behind the scenes with everything from sub-editing to marketing.
Please let me know what you think!
