Lost Things & Forgotten Places: A Quick Preamble

Updated: Aug 27

Hi everyone. I've been giving social media a wide berth lately, for a multiplicity of reasons - and I must confess, I haven't been writing much, either.

I miss it, though.

So, in the spirit of getting back on the horse - and to give myself a much-needed kick up the arse - I thought I'd share a WIP on here, as I write it: a potentially quite sprawling Stand-like behemoth of a thing, set in the Salvation Spring universe. (Though in no way is it a prerequisite to have read the latter before diving in).

I've always enjoyed - and fancied trying my hand at - serialised fiction (if Armistead Maupin can do it with Tales of the City, it's good enough for me)... and the loose-limbed structure of this particular story feels like it lends itself quite well to an episodic format. So I'll be dividing this one into Seasons - and, in true (old-school) terrestrial TV style, will be sharing new chapters/updating once a week.

(Not sure if it'll turn out to be Must-See TV, or will even warrant a brief bit of water-cooler chat... but we live in hope).

I'm writing Season 3 as we speak (after a very, very long hiatus), though it'll obviously be a while before we get there... but in the meantime, I'm delighted to be able to kick off Season 1 of LOST THINGS & FORGOTTEN PLACES on here - and see where this particular journey takes us.

So, without further ado... Here's Episode 1!

Hope you like it.


P.S. Odds are, given it's a WIP, there'll be typos and inconsistencies that will mortify me later - so apologies in advance for whatever horrors you stumble upon herein.

The inadvertent horrors, anyway...

P.P.S. On the subject of which... since this is horror, content warnings apply throughout for:

- Body horror (human and animal), some of it extreme

- Violence, some of it extreme

- Death / murder

- Allusions to torture

- Physical illness, disease and decay

I'll update as we go, but by all means let me know if there are any I've missed
