Other Work

These pages are ever under construction but I update the links and hope to have them all operational one day.   If you paste the title and by Oonah into a search, the others are not hard to find.   Works contained in ‘dead magazines’ will either be put up in this site or resubmitted.  Do tell me what you like best and thank you for reading. For your convenience I have also placed pages for individual magazines where the body of work is substantial (say 15 items or more) so you can go to Micro Horror page for example if horror is your bag.

Speaking of dead, here’s one from the vaults  – me ascending from the crypt under Saint Michan’s episcopalian church in Dublin where I shook the hand of the crusader – that was many years ago (1977?)before his arm started to come away 😉  I think you can only touch his finger these days but if you go to Dublin, do!  It is evident from these writings that a little of the horror must rub off 🙂
