Another Place – Alf Dubs Children’s Fund


My story “The Immaculate Ones” is in Another Place. A charity anthology of speculative fiction in aid of the Alf Dubs Children’s Fund. I’m pleased and honoured to be part of this and hope it does well and raises lots of money for the charity and raises awareness of the issue. Thanks to all those involved in producing it.

“This science fiction anthology from both established and emerging writers explores the experiences of children, refugees and migrants as they navigate unfamiliar and often hostile worlds in search of sanctuary. A child in a dusty old bookshop is captivated by a picture book that leads him far from home. On a newly discovered planet, a group of soldiers escort a group of mysterious children across the desert. A man carries out a macabre sentence on the grimy Lunar regolith, not knowing if he will ever be forgiven for his crime. And in an alternate-universe Japan, a boy unravels a deeper mystery while searching for the girl he loves. The anthology raises money for child refugees and all profits will be donated to the Alf Dubs Children’s Fund via Safe Passage.” from the Publishers.

This book is launch alongside Voices along the Road an anthology of flash fiction and poetry for the same charity.

Both available now from Amazon:

Chrysalis chapbook by Gary Budgen out today


Ten stories. Ten investigations into the transformations brought about by obsession, neglect and fanaticism. From an interspecies love affair on an alien world through the dead countries of a troubled imagination, the apocalypse as a product launch, and into the heart of the labyrinth. The chrysalis is about to open.
