A Most Notorious Woman

Originally published in Albedo One

Grace O’Malley, the Pirate Queen, ruled the sixteenth century seas. But can she conquer the future too?

“The editorial team save the best story until last; T. D. Edge’s ‘A Most Notorious Woman’ . . . Edge creates a marvellously larger than life heroine in Grace O’Malley and the story is one of the best of 2009. Outstanding.” Suite 101

Below the Bollocks Line

Originally published in Mirror Shards Vol. One

Bill Wilson wants out from all the advertising virtual bollocks he’s forced to consume just to qualify for a government apartment—like the talking tofuburgers and the animapuppies . . . seems the only thing that’s real is his son’s vagina.

From The New Podler Review of Books:

“For me, the 2011 winner, hands down, was Mirror Shards. This anthology, about the impact of augmented reality upon society, featured a diverse array of authors. Indie author, Thomas Carpenter, assembled the stories from both traditionally published and indie writers and published it under his Black Moon Books imprint. The end result was a highly entertaining and thought provoking read.”

    • Thanks, Mike. Same to you with your Novel Fox sale. I’m very fond of ‘Where’s the Tiger’s Head?’ since it’s rooted in the East End side of my family.
