Dog Ear publish Fumble mouth by Julian Baker

Hand on heart, I didn’t say those nice things about the bookmark that thinks it’s a magazine that thinks it’s a bookmark that thinks it’s a…. only because I knew this was going to happen…

Dog Ear publish my tiny fiction “Fumble mouth”.

I said them because I meant it, and sent the tale in after my post, honestly. So kiddies, just goes to show, no harm comes from saying nice things about nice people making nice stuff.

Thank you Dog Ear.

Repatriation for Emigration

Posted in wrought by juliobesq on November 17, 2010


A stolen suitcase...



My tiny fiction “Emigration” miraculously reappeared on the front page of Six Sentences this Monday.

If you haven’t read it before this could be an omen, it’s very short, it wont take long.

Head over to…

Emigration published on Six Sentences

I have further stories (not available online) in Vol 2 and Vol 3 of the 6S print anthologies

3:am publish Frames

Posted in wrought by juliobesq on September 9, 2010

3:am have published my tiny tale “Frames”.

Actually it’s more of a short story but don’t let that stop you from reading it.

I am somewhat ecstatic to be in 3:am so a huge thank you to them (and a smaller thanks to here where I stole the clip frame from)

Wooden Heart published in 6Sv3

Posted in wrought by juliobesq on April 30, 2010

Six sentences publishes their third volume of short stories, not breaking with tradition it’s entitled 6Sv3.

It features not only my tale “Wooden heart” but my wife’s fictional debut too. A double serving.

Copies can be brought from and as a ‘friend’ of the authors you can use the discount code TLGEFA8L to get 20% off. Unfortunately knowing two of the authors doesn’t mean you can use the coupon twice.

A Clean Mind published by The Pygmy Giant

Posted in caught by juliobesq on April 13, 2010

I’m delighted to announce that The Pygmy Giant have published my tiny fiction ‘A Clean Mind’…

The Pygmy Giant ought to receive a round of applause for actively supporting UK writers, I had this story turned down by a stateside litzine for to being too Anglicised and was even refered to as ‘British Julian’. Hoping it speaks a universal language, but not a global truth.

I stole the Brillo picture from Mr Warhol who scrubbed up nice I hear.

Hamam published by This Zine…

Posted in caught by juliobesq on March 26, 2010

This Zine Will Change Your Life is one of my favourite bi-weekly stop-offs, a super sharp shot of strong fiction to slug back with a morning expresso.

I rate it enough to buy a copy of ‘Radiant days’ by Michael A Fitzgerald solely on their recommendation (so it better be good boys). Can you imagine my joy when I heard that they are publishing my tiny fiction ‘Hamam’. There might even have been a funny little celebratory dance.

Grab a towel and read it at

Wooden Heart to be published in the 6Sv3 book

Posted in wrought by juliobesq on March 18, 2010

The husband and wife team who make sweet words together… maybe not make but keep cosy under a shared cover, for my tiny fiction ‘Wooden Heart’ has been accepted for publication in the third volume of Six Sentences short stories, alongside my spouses debut ‘Reward Card’: two tales of six sentences which along with this announcement sharper readers will realise totals a Baker’s dozen.

Atisshoo published by Ink, Sweat and Tears

Posted in wrought by juliobesq on February 24, 2010

My tiny fiction ‘Atisshoo’ has been published by Ink, Sweat and Tears

Charles Christian started I,S&T to fill a gap in what he saw as a union between poetry and prose, a gap that in the five years it has been publishing he has helped fill considerably. Kudos to those who home the misfits, my gratitude and admiration goes to him.

Foundations published by Matchbook Story

Posted in wrought by juliobesq on January 18, 2010

One of my submissions to Matchbook Story has been made pick of the week on their blog.


Head on over to to read it. There is a touch of absurdity in this post probably being longer than the actual story…

6Sv2 available from Amazon

Posted in wrought by juliobesq on April 16, 2009


I have two tiny fictions “Marriage” and “Minicab driver” in the second anthology of very short stories from Six Sentences.

You can buy it from Amazon or Createspace

I’d go for Createspace but those of us in the UK may find Amazon’s postage cheaper.

In fact, until the failamazon issue is satisfactorily explained I’d rather you did buy it from Createspace regardless of postage costs, I am.

You can read one of my stories and lots by other people at the six sentences site.
