Published in Crimson Fog

by - September 26, 2012

It seems as though all I'm doing these days is giving you links and sending you to different other websites where I've either written or done something. Tired yet ?
Well, just one more. For my sake na. Good boy/girl/none of the above, na ? 
The fact of the matter is that a story I'd written will be available in e-magazine format on October 1st in the inaugural issue of TM Publishing's 'Crimson Fog' magazine. 

For those who are interested, it's a psychological thriller set in a lonely mansion in South India where the sole survivor of a heinous event discovers that history has a horrifying way of repeating itself. It's a  non-linear narrative, constantly shifting between the two timelines - across Hindu rituals, modern-day seances, creatures in the dark and images in the mirror - as the mystery of what happened on that fateful night three decades ago is finally revealed. 

A sincere thanks to the wonderful editorial team of the magazine and especially the uber-patient Mr Daniel Friend (talk about having a super-cool surname !! ). It truly is his hardwork and eye for detail that helped me iron out loopholes in the narrative and provide a tale which I hope will keep you guessing till the end. FYI, this is not a short story - I'm guessing the story will run into a good 15-20 pages in the magazine so be warned.


The magazine is available online for free presently. The steps for accessing it are as follows :
1. Click on this link to go to the TM Publishing subscription page
2. While avid readers may definitely choose to click the 'All Magazines' button, those who just wish to read this story need only select the 'Crimson Fog' button. If you choose to create a new account, the registration code to be typed is "BP" ( without the quotes )
3. Touchwood, if all goes according to plan and aliens don't attack before October 1st, a copy of 'Crimson Fog' should arrive in your mail on said date.

While the magazine can be read on e-readers and smart phones, I personally enjoyed reading it on a laptop/computer as opposed to a mobile device. It's just so much more enjoyable turning the pages on a full screen - check out the current issue 'Emerald Sky' to get an idea.   

Please do come back here and share your opinion of the story with me once you are done. I'm eager to hear what you thought of it.
