A Wee Read - Bouncer by Gerard Brennan


If you fancy a wee read with your afternoon tea, why not jump over to the Verbal Magazine website? The pdf of their latest issue is now available, and they've published a story by yours truly in the New Writing section. You'll need to download issue 17 from the list on the left as they're currently updating the website and it won't appear in html format until they've sorted that out. But there's the added bonus that you'll be able to see the lovely illustration by David Campbell that accompanies it.

And sure, let's have a wee bit of fun while we're at it.

A COMPETITION!

There's a mistake hidden in the story's text. The first to identify it and post the answer as a comment here wins a free copy of my horror-comedy chapbook, Possession, Obsession and a Diesel Compression Engine. Just make sure you include your email address in the comment so I can contact you for you meatspace address.

Is it any wonder us
bouncers come across as a bit
surly sometimes?

It should be we instead of us.

I enjoyed the read!

Ah, sorry MG, that's not it. But the mistake occurs during that scene.

Thanks for giving it a shot. If nobody else spots it (or tries to), the chapbook's yours!

Sammy goes to Paddy"?????? should be Jimmy?

Colman - And we have a winner!!!

Nicely spotted.

Now, I know you have a copy of PODCE, so here's what I'll do. MG gets the spare PODCE and you'll get a copy of Badass Horror, a crime fiction-horror genre-blend anthology that features my story Pool Sharks and six others.

So, just email me your addresses ( gerardforpresident(at)yahoo.co.uk ) and I'll post them out in the next few days.

Cheers
