Stories Under Paris project

This is not a post about food, but I thought that those of you who read this blog regularly might be interested in some of the other things I’m writing at the moment.

Between this blog and my politics blog and the writing I do for work, I realised that I stopped writing fiction a few years ago, and I miss it.

So I’ve started a new project, which is kind of grandiose but fun, in which I’m attempting to write a short story for every Metro station in Paris.  Some of the stories will be about the people the stations are named for, others will be riffing on literal translations of the station names.  There are (or will be) recurring characters.  There are quite a few different genres, because some stations imply fairy tales, others ghost stories, and yet others historical fiction.

I’ve posted 6 stories so far (there will be more than 300 in total – yes, it’s a big project!), and will be posting a new story every fortnight, so if this sounds interesting, please pop over and visit Stories Under Paris and have a bit of a read.

You can subscribe to the site to by email, or like its Facebook page to keep up with new stories.

Hope to see you there!
