Write on Course

Quite apart from anything else, spending time at Worldcon and meeting with so many excellent writers gave me a much-needed kick up the arse as far as my own writing goes. I've spent the last three weeks at work on a new story (1920s horror, for those keeping track) and have plans for one more each month between now and Christmas... including a redraft of a novella for an online project I'll tell you more about later.

Meanwhile some more pics have emerged of the convention - these taken by the rather splendid Tom Bicknell:

Grants Pass writer Martin Livings, editors Jennifer Brozek and Amanda Pillar, and myself.

Signing at the Scenes From the Second Storey launch.

And talking of Scenes, the first review of the book has been posted over at The Specusphere, and it's a positive one:

"Readers who enjoy speculative fiction - and short stories in particular - will revel in this collection that gives glimpses into the human psyche in all its variety."
The full review - including commentary on each and every one of the stories in the anthology - can be found on the Specusphere site.
