Most of what James writes is dark, supernatural fiction, although not necessarily ‘horror’ in the blood and guts sense. James’s second collection of short stories, Falling Over, was published by Infinity Plus in 2013, and The Quarantined City, a serial story from Spectral Press, is being released in six parts during 2015. James’s upcoming novella, Trying To Be So Quiet, will be published by Boo Books in 2015. And you should definitely check out James’s short story, ‘The Man in Blue Boots’, in the Hic Dragones anthology Hauntings (edited by yours truly!) – it’s an absolute (creepy) gem of a story.
I spoke to James about his short stories and novella, and also about the challenges of writing serialized fiction.
