Train Tracking

My son doesn't get back to school until tomorrow (I know - starts back on Friday, then it's the weekend ...), so I've been having a work-lite day today. That meant dipping into Casino Royale (thanks to Simon for blogging about Bond and so reminding me that the original Fleming novels have been on my to-read list for almost two years ...) and pottering around on the Internet, odd-jobbing.

One of the things I had to do online was check out the Australian Horror Writers Association in the wake of some chats I'd had at Swancon. And while I was on their website I was pleasantly surprised to find that not only was there a good buzz about the In Bad Dreams anthology overall, but also that This Train Terminates Here was named amongst the 'worthy finalists' that didn't quite make the shortlist for the 2007 Australian Shadows awards.

It's always nice to have someone say good things about your work, but more so in this case because of the cool reception some reviewers gave the very same story. Which, as I believe I've said before, just goes to show ...

Oooh, hadn't seen that yet, just had Karron's story pointed out as honourable mention... cool!
