On ‘The Dead Man’s Gun’

My piece The Dead Man’s Gun has been published in the May 2020 edition of the ever-mysterious RIC Journal.

The Dead Man shifts and shakes based on mood or the position of the stars – I’m never sure where I will find him or where he will end up, especially in the era of the virus. It is always a thrill to have his deeds and wanderings appear in RIC – thanks to Saudamini, as always.

On ‘Reverse Obituary’

Very pleased to say that my piece Reverse Obituary has been published in the January 2020 edition of RIC Journal.

This was inspired by the desire to write an obit of sorts for Kabid and pull all the threads of his life story – i.e. pre-death and before he became The Dead Man – together; the Dead Man died long ago, and has since taken on a life of his own. But also I came across this wacky article in QZ on how envisaging one’s death can help with career goal setting…

Enjoyed the writing of this one a lot, felt the high for days. Thanks to S – as always.
