‘Wan’s intriguing mystery of loss, told in crisp, sparse prose, is a narrative for our age of environmental destruction.' - Vesna Main
My story ‘This Must Be Earth’ is a new Nightjar release, alongside Ailsa Cox's 'Cocky Watchman’.
They're both published in a limited-edition print run of 200 signed chapbooks. I first wrote a (terrible) version of this story in 2017 and it went through a number of serious drafts until, last year, it finally found its best expression.
And, yes, for those of you wondering if Mark Murphy had anything to do with it, you guessed correctly - it was his fantastic song, 'This Must Be Earth' which helped me get there.
I'm so pleased the story has found its home with Nightjar - big thanks to Nicholas Royle and John Oakey of John Oakey Design.
