Well & Truly Sporked! – Another story accepted!


I’m pleased to announce that last night I received an email saying;

I’m happy to tell you that your story was successful at this time. The overall standard of submissions was really high and I have had to make some tough decisions, so the anthology will be slightly larger than intended.

This has been accepted into the Fringe Works Potatoes anthology, and was my first attempt at writing straight, crime-based fiction. Not a hint of science fiction, magic or steampunker anywhere! It was also my first attempt at writing first-person perspective for someone who is truly awful. He’s the sort of person decent, middle-class people shy away from. He’s foul-mouthed, ill mannered and quite frankly bloody dangerous.

I can’t wait until this one comes out!

About mattsylvester

Father of two beautiful daughters and married to the beautiful Karen, Matthew has been reading and writing fantasy and science fiction since he first read the Hobbit at the age of 7. Matthew was Features Editor, Technical Consultant and regular columnist for magazines such as ‘Fighters’, ‘Combat’, ‘TKD & Korean Martial Arts’ and ‘Traditional Karate’. These are the four leading martial arts magazines in the United Kingdom. He is also the author of the critically acclaimed 'Practical Taekwondo: Back to the Roots', which has been sold around the world. With regard to his martial arts background he has been studying martial arts since 1991. In 1995 he hosted Professor Rick Clark of the ADK and since then has been studying pressure points and their uses in the martial arts and on the street (initially as a Special Constable and as a Door Supervisor). All of this practical hands-on experience means that he is uniquely placed to write fight scenes that are not only plausible but some of which are based on personal or anecdotal experience. Matthew has had a number of short stories published by Fringe Works, KnightWatch Press, Anderfam Press and Emby Press.
