This blog chronicles the triumphs and trials of fiction writer Darius Jones.
I have published the following works:
- Pacha-Mama, a horror-fantasy story set in modern day Peru, came out in Scarlet Leaf Review in February 2020.
- Breakpoint, a science fiction short story with a cyberpunk flavor, was published in Kyanite Press Volume I, Issue 2 in November 2018.
- So You Found Me, a fantasy flash fiction piece, was published in issue 3 of Between Worlds Magazine in January 2017.
- Barabanchik, a story set in a Moscow train station in the 1990s, was published in Issue 4 of Sobotka Literary Magazine in July 2016.
- The Ghul of Yazd, an Orientalist horror novella was published in Issue 0 of Strangelet Journal in September 2014. I tracked the story’s rejections and final acceptance in the UnRejectionable Ghul section on this blog.
- The Hatchlings, a dark science fiction piece, was published on Fiction Vortex in August 2013. This was my first story that was “traditionally” published. It also won 3rd place in FV’s Readers’ Choice Award for their August issue.
- The Man Who Ran from God, a historical novella, came out in 2013.
- The Library of Lost Books, a fantasy-surrealist novel, was published in 2012.

You can also find me on:
- Twitter: @DariusJonesWrit. This is the best place to keep up with my day-to-day progress. I Tweet each time I write, edit or publish a new story. I also Tweet on literary topics or anything that moves me.
- Instagram: dariusjoneswrit. I have no idea why someone would want to view images from a writer, but, hey, it’s here if you want to check it out!
As for me, there’s not much to tell…Not yet…Maybe not ever. Let’s just say: I write fiction whenever I get a chance!
