Accolade (not a soft drink)

Some good news - Helen Grant's story 'The Sea Change' from ST11 has been nominated for a Bram Stoker Award. This follows an inquiry from a leading anthology editor about the story. I was greatly impressed with 'The Sea Change' myself, of course, but I wouldn't have named it as the strongest story in the issue. Shows what I know. (The story is also topping the ST readers poll.)

Other news - the Mike Chislett special, A Game of Ghosts, has been printed and will be delivered soon (I hope). The magazine proper, ST12, is due for printing early next month. I will be a bit of a race to get overseas copies out before the Christmas period, which (judging from Tesco this afternoon) is almost upon us.

So, things are quite good really. But I'm tired, God I'm tired. Work is getting harder as I get older, I suppose. Can I rediscover the joy of writing? If not, it'll be no show on the fiction front. I've no intention of doing work I don't enjoy in my free time.

Oh, and I've bought a laptop so I can sit up in bed and (possibly) write deathless prose. And edit the magazine. When one finishes another begins.
