A breathtaking image. The choice of Black and White enhances the deep shadows and delightful highlights. I love the domestic setting - ...

So, I've been published for the second time this year. While Synthesis was a pure Science Fiction Anthology, 666 is a Horror Anthology that was released on the evening of Halloween.

It contains 30+ stories, each exactly 666 words long, which makes it rather unique.

My story 'Headhunted' is the second story up, right after the story by Professional author Michael Brookes, and was 'highly commended' by the editors of the anthology.

You can find it here:…

And I have to say - I love the cover!

DaddyHoggy's Profile Picture
United Kingdom
At the time of writing (Jan 2016) I'm a 44 year old ex-Rocket Scientist (yes, really). I've been an academic for the last 7 years teaching Modelling and Simulation to a mainly military audience.

I've been writing since I was old enough to hold a pen (in my left hand - despite teachers' insistence that I hold it in my right).

I have no real talent for art/drawing but can sometimes do what I want to do via a computer - I did take it to an extreme when I was 14 when I wrote an art package for my Commodore 64, just so I could draw...

I love to find inspiration for my stories in the work of others, which is why I joined DeviantArt in the first place.

I like to comment - there is so much amazing work on this site and so much of it goes unnoticed. If I see your work and I like it, and it is uncommented, I will leave you a comment...


One for my digital art friends - no mention of price! Does look very nice though!…
Anybody else's statistics completely buggered up? According to DA stats nobody has looked at, commented or favourited one of my deviations since 2014...
