WARP (Nemo 3)

WARP was published in 2003, since when our writing has been very satisfying. Our first novel SHELTER is being published by Leisure on July 4th 2006 (http://www.dorchesterpub.com/Dorch/authordetail.cfm?Author_ID=428), we have got an agent, our second novel, DEMONEYES, is being read for (hopefully) publication, our collection FALLING INTO HEAVEN has been very well received, our third novel is 50% written, a movie script from "Shelter" is being written, one of our stories was in an anthology that won World Fantasy Award (Strange Tales from Tartarus), another has been optioned for a US movie, another was in "Best New Horror 16" from Stephen Jones, and a new novella DOUBLE ACT is being published in 2006. All the details can be found at http://www.maynard-sims.com.

"Warp" was originally written in 1990 and went through various guises, at one time being 8500 words long. The finished piece at 3300 was always fun to read but never really fitted in with any of our other stories and that is why it never appeared in any of our collections. Getting WARP published, well the acceptance actually, provided a lovely underscoring of our many years of writing and helped propel us to the things we are doing today. Our thanks will always be to Des for liking the story and publishing it in such an elegant and eloquent publication as Nemo.
