"Hungry is the Dark" - in "For the Night is Dark" (Crystal Lake Publishing) due out early April 2013

"Like Clockwork" - in "No Monsters Allowed" (Dog Horn Press) due out JUly/August 2013

All Due Respect out now!

Posted by Benedict J Jones on February 1, 2013 at 4:50 AM Comments comments (0)

My story "Habeus Corpus", the dark tale of a gangland fixer in London, is out now in the "All Due Respect" anthology from Full Dark City Press.  I've been looking forward to seeing this one out there since Chris Rhatigan first accepted it.  My story is in some great company and the kindle edition is only £0.77 (or .99 cents) so no excuses for people not to pick it up really!


Print version should be available within a few days. 

Hopefully this will be the first of many publications this year - cue cheesy grin...

Gone west again

My story "Four Bullets to Leadville" is out now at the Western Online:


It's a story I've wanted to write for a long time, since I read the excellent "Crow Killer" by Raymond W Thorp and Robert Bunker, and I'm really glad that it has been published.

Some news and events

Posted by Benedict J Jones on October 6, 2012 at 11:05 AM Comments comments (0)

A couple of bits of news regarding my stories, firstly my flash fiction crime piece "Lock In" has been accepted by the wonderful "Shotgun Honey" webzine and should appear in November.  Personally I'm really happy about the acceptance as SH has published some authors who I really respect and admire.

On another positive note it has been confirmed that the second collected One Eye Grey will be appearing in time for Halloween featuring my story "Goin' Underground" and there is to be a launch party on 29th of October at Brockwell Lido - a few beers and a natter about horror stories on a Monday night, how could I not go!

In other news I'm waiting to hear back from the publishers regarding the first Charlie Bars Novella and should do so by the end of October so fingers and toes are crossed, working on quite a few anthology submissions so hopefully 2012 will end on a high and 2013 will be an even better year.

Goin' Underground reloaded

Posted by Benedict J Jones on September 6, 2012 at 5:35 PM Comments comments (0)

Following on from the kindle release, by One Eye Grey, of my story 'Walking on Water' I've just heard from the wonderful Chris at One Eye Grey (F&M Publications) that my story 'Goin' Underground' will be coming out in October in time for Halloween.

'Goin' Underground' was the first story I had published (and the first time I made any money off of my writing) and as such holds a special place in my memory banks - so I'm really glad to see it getting another lease of life.

Wolf Skins!

I've always been a huge fan of Westerns, some of my earliest film memories are of the genre so I am very proud to see my first horror tinged western story appear over at The Western Online... enjoy
