The Watcher

The Watcher

A new story of mine has been published by Bewildering Stories Issue 439. The Watcher is entirely auto-biographical, apart from the bits I made up. Another Glasgow ghost story, the parts which are based on cold fact, and the bits which are writer embellishment, I leave to your imagination.

Simon and Hugh aren't based on any particular academics, but are an amalgamation of bits of various different academics I've known over the years.

This story came to me on Christmas Day 2005 (technically Boxing Day) around 4am, walking back home after I had seen my friend Louise safely home after a get together. And not six years later, here it finally is, readable.

By my standards, that is positively swift!
