Essays, More Awards, And An Open Call – 2018 So Far

Hello everyone!

I realized it’s been far too long since I last updated my blog and wanted to take a chance to catch you up on what’s been going on in the world of M.H. Norris since I last updated.


As most of you may know, All The Petty Myths finally released at the end of last year featuring my story, “Midnight.” You can get it in print or ebook format. The collection took home several awards in the 2017 Preditors and Editors Reader’s Poll. “Midnight” placed second in the Best Mystery category, “Locked Room” by Marc Sorondo was voted Best Science Fiction & Fantasy short story, and James Bojaciuk’s “Dopplegangers (and Other Artistic Piffle) was voted Best Steampunk Short Story.

All The Petty Myths was years in the making and turned into such a fantastic project and I’m incredibly proud to have worked with all the authors in the collection.

Children Of Time CoverI had the honor of writing an essay for a Doctor Who charity collection, Children of Time: The Companions Of Doctor WhoIt was fun to write about K-9 and talk about how I met the man behind the tin dog last year.  The collection also features some work from a lot of my friends and we cover a variety of companions from all eras of the show.

The Raconteur Roundtable entered its third season and we’ve had some amazing guests on including: Louise Jameson, Kara Dennison, and Jacqueline Rayner (which for me was a personal treat since she is one of my favorite authors). We also have some fun guests in store for the rest of the year and I can’t wait for you all to hear these episodes.

The last big update I have is I’m curating another anthology over at 18thWall with my dear friend Jon Black. Overdue: Tales of Mystery And Adventure Returning History’s Lost Books To Circulation is open for submission through October 15, 2018.

I’m working on the first full-length mystery featuring Dr. Rosella Tassoni and will give you guys news on that as soon as I have it!

That’s it for now! Hope you guys are having an amazing year!


Award-winning mystery author, co-host of the Raconteur Roundtable, lover of mystery and science fiction.
