Just got a postcard from Joel Lane to say that his story 'Still Water' has been accepted by Stephen Jones for Best New Horror 19. The story was the lead in ST11, so I'm a genius. Well, not exactly, but it's good to know that the mag will get a bit of attention thanks to Mr Lane's talent and Mr Jones' discernment. So there.
Sadly, Helen Grant's excellent story from ST12, 'The Sea Change', did not win the Bram Stoker award. Curse this democracy, it keeps coming up with the wrong result.
