Some Time In Marrakesh.

My story, Some Time In Marrakesh, has just been published in Outposts of Beyond 4. It's currently only available in print, but the e-version should appear in the next few days.

I also appeared in issues 2 and 3, so I'm thrilled to have had three in a row. At this stage I have nothing slated for issue 5 so the run should end here.

I absolutely love the cover artwork for this issue. I have no idea who the artist is, but The artist is Laura Givens, and I'd like to congratulate her on her work. I'm pretty sure the editors at Alban Lake didn't commission the artwork just for my story, but I'd be surprised if it wasn't specially chosen just for this issue. It reflects my story so accurately it could easily have been commissioned art.

Some Time In Marrakesh was based on an incident that actually occurred to my wife and me when we were wandering around that great city. We were on our way to the souks when....

No, I'll leave you to read the story. The opening scene is very close to reality.

Thanks, Alban Lake, for publishing me again.

Congratulations, Steve. I'm intrigued - what did you experience? I'll have to get me a copy soon.
