Sometimes, I get a line stuck in my head. It usually stays deep down, but it’s there, working away in my subconscious mind, pulling in other ideas as it grows. Often, the only way to get rid of that line is to set it free.
The End Of The World started like that, with the line ‘The world ended sixteen days ago, and nobody noticed.’ But I didn’t want this to be a depressing story. I wanted something that is sympathetic to the holiday season (and having certain similarities with Groundhog Day might help here!)

And there will be more new stories throughout 2019.
