Murky Depths #16, featuring me

Murky-Depths-16I’m a big fan of Murky Depths magazine. It’s a classy publication and won the British Fantasy Awards – Best Magazine/Periodical 2010, so other people think it’s cool too. I was really pleased when they bought my story, Mirrorwalk, for publication. It comes out in Issue 16, which is due in April and is available for pre-order now. Man, I love to see my name on the cover of a magazine or book I really dig. I can’t see that ever getting old.

You can get all the details here.

There’s a lot that makes Murky Depths a great mag. There’s the obvious high quality fiction that it’s based around, but there’s also original art commissioned to accompany each story. Apparently my story is being illustrated by Rick Fairlamb, so I can’t wait to see what he’s come up with. Check out his site and you’ll see why I’m so excited about that – his artwork is superb. On top of that there are interviews, articles and book and movie reviews.

In issue 16 you’ll find:

Dead Girls – Act 2 Richard Calder [Art: Leonardo M Giron]
Valeria Ian R Faulkner [Ed Norden]
Mirrorwalk Alan Baxter [Rick Fairlamb]
Momentum Kevin Anderson [Lahlahlou]
Blood Not Boiling Andrew Roberts [Ciaran Collins]
All Smiles Mercurio D Rivera [Russell Morgan]
The Audition JS Watts [Anna Robertson]
Teamwork Jonathan Pinnock [Caroline Parkinson]
Mowing them Down Michael J DeLuca [David Migman]
I Dream Of Ants (1) Lavie Tidhar [Neil Struthers]
From The Back Of The Wardrobe Kevin Tucker
Interview with Neil Roberts
Spotlight Lahlahlou
Book & DVD Reviews by IE Lester

So pre-order your copy now, or better yet get yourself a subscription. I’m really proud of Mirrorwalk, so would love to hear your thoughts once you’ve had a chance to read it.

  1. Hi Alan, Thanks very much for the sweet comments, much appreciated. I loved working on
    ‘Mirrorwalk’ and was immediately pulled into the tale. You’re right to be proud of it. It’s great to
    see the books you’ve written also, I’ll look forward to reading them.
    I hope you’re happy with the image I’ve produced for the story. Once the book is out, I’ll be
    uploading the Illustration on my website. It’ll look a little different to the Murky depths version
    as I sometimes add my own type. And of course, I’ll have your name on the title of the image.
    I hope you’re well.


  2. Hi Rick

    Thanks for commenting! I’m really glad you enjoyed the story and I hope you enjoy the books if you do read them. Can’t wait to see your illustration.

    Seriously, folks – check out Rick’s portfolio. If you like my writing I think you’ll love his artwork.
