Cold Witness
By Alex Roddie

Cold Witness, my first science fiction short story, has now been published as a standalone title on Kindle. This piece was first published as part of the No Way Home speculative fiction anthology, and is a twisted tale that has been described as ‘techno Lovecraft’. You can purchase it on Kindle UK for 99p.

Cold Witness

In 1976, an RAF radio engineer is sent to decommission an old military installation at a remote site in the Suffolk countryside.

What he finds there will bend the fabric of reality and plunge him into a waking nightmare from which there can be no escape.

Who is the dreamer, and who is the dream?

Praise for Cold Witness

‘An unusual and off-beat story told with great skill’ – David Wailing (author)

‘The lucidity of reality versus dreams and what it means to exist are explored throughout Cold Witness in a way that I found simultaneously chilling and refreshing.’ – Anthony Vicino (author)

‘I was really impressed with the techno-Lovecraft vibe. This is definitely more of a mental thriller, but the stakes are no less exciting.’ – S.E. Lehenbauer (author)

What survives in the record: a Glen Coe hill day from 15 years ago today

Every now and again, I dip into my Lightroom library and journals, curious to see what I was doing 10, 15, or 20 years ago on this day. On the 6th of April, 2009, my brother James had just arrived in Glen Coe and was keen to experience these mountains

Some phone pictures from a sunny hill weekend (and a few thoughts on photo note-taking)

And now for something completely different. If you want to understand my approach to photos as a working outdoor writer then 35mm film (which I gush about on this blog all the time) is only a third of the story. Another third is my full-frame digital camera – no surprises there.

Maybe the web used to be better than it is now

I am spending less time on Instagram and more time in the old-fashioned blogosphere (via my RSS reader) once again, because I increasingly dislike what Instagram does to my brain. And I increasingly wonder if the internet was actually better and more diverse when more of us posted updates regularly
