Storylandia 17 review on Amazon

“Well done. Each story should be planned as a read aloud event for teens to adults – the good old fashion way.”

Storylandia 14 review on Amazon

“A well-written, scathing examination of 21st-century culture and journalism, done with tongue firmly planted in cheek. Mr. Denton is at his best creating characters with an economy most cultural commentators sorely lack. He manages to evoke deep characters with a minimum of fuss or actual details, leaving just enough to the reader’s imagination. A short, fun read that is definitely recommended.”
Amazon review by Charlie Cottrell, Storylandia 14 this review is on the Kindle edition, but there’s also a paperback version

Storylandia 15 print review

“Storylandia is the title of ‘The Wapshott Journal of Fiction,’ published by Wapshott Press. The Spring 2015 issue, Storylandia #15 (Wapshott Press pb, 142pp, $7.60), is dedicated to the work of Julie Travis, a writer who will be familiar to older readers from the early days of our predecessor The Third Alternative and possibly from other places as well. It contains five stories, all of them previously unpublished, and which, though the writer admits a preference for the term ‘slipstream,’ have about them much that should appeal to horror genre purists.”
Black Static #53, only available in print.

Storylandia 15 author Julie Travis interview

“PT: You’re a UK writer and much of your work seems very solidly grounded in the landscape here, and yet your first collection is appearing from a US publisher. Can you tell us a little as to how that came about? What has it been like working with Wapshott Press?

“JT: It came about by chance. I see my work as quite ‘British’ in terms of the folklore element as well as in the physical landscape. Some years back I trawled the Internet looking for possible publishers and came across Wapshott Press amongst others (I’ve had several stories published by North American magazines and webzines). I sent them a story because I thought the covers of their anthologies were gorgeous and my instinct said it was the right thing to do – even though horror/dark fantasy was not mentioned at all in what they publish. Storylandia’s editor, Ginger Mayerson, just understands what I’m doing. Two stories (‘The Falling Man and ‘The Ferocious Night’) appeared in two of their anthologies and when they moved to single author collections I was asked to do one. And they’re lovely to work with; friendly and professional. I feel blessed to have crossed Ginger’s path.”
