Hello, and welcome to my blog.
I'm Thomas H Pugh. I'm a farmer and more recently a writer and editor. I started accepting submissions in January for an anthology I am putting together ROLLICKING TALES: THE FARMER'S ALMANAC. The deadline for this is 31st December 2012, and it will be published in May 2013. There will be more about this project in a few weeks when a blog tour in its honour kicks off from here. For more details go to www.rollicking-tales.co.uk.
My first self penned story will be coming out shortly in an issue of Bruce Bethke's Stupefying Stories. The story in question is 'The Curse of Lincoln's Inn: a Tale of the Albion Club.' It is a Victorian era murder/mystery/action/adventure, very much in the tradition of the penny dreadfuls.
The Albion Club is a society of like minded Victorian gentlemen and ladies who have sworn to protect the denizens of the British Empire at what ever cost. When one of their number Colonel Titby, late of the Norfolk Regiment and a Boer War veteran, fails to return to their base John Turnpike, better known as Ptarmigan is sent to investigate. What he finds leads him to some of the darkest corners of smog filled London, and pits him against a foe he won't forget in a hurry...
