Nightmare du Jour

I am proud to announce that my 100 word prose poem ‘Victim’ will be included in The Daily Nightmare‘s second anthology. (Tentatively named More Quick Shivers) You can get hold of their first volume here



The Daily Nightmare is a place where you can go and share your nightmares to their archive. Like a sort of bad dream amnesty.

The forthcoming anthology will be a number of prose poems that are exactly 100 words and each one of them is inspired by one of the 350 or so nightmares on the site.   For the nightmare that inspired me….well, you’ll just have to wait and see.


I will update with more details about the anthology when I have them.


This marks a milestone as it is the first piece of fiction I have sold, but in an unpleasant twist of irony, I have been plagued by nightmares for the last two nights….has anyone got Alanis Morissette’s number?
