Only last month I reviewed an anthology of noir stories. Around a Dark Corner is an intriguing collection by Jeani Rector ISBN 978-0956188403 including a short story with the briliant title Horrorscope. It was a pleasant surprise to find my name in the Acknowledgements. Jeani had read my notes to her on another book, Open Grave and liked my comments on how you should be able to distinguish characters by the way they talk and behave without needing to identify them with dialogue tags all the time.
I heard today that a critique buddy at the BSFA Orbiters, Ian Clarke, also has named me in his acknowledgements. His scifi book, Interspex, follows a father’s trail for justice following his son’s death after marrying an alien. A brilliant book and you can find out more about it, and make a purchase at http://www.undeadtree.com/ just locate Interspex in the left column.
I’ll be seeing Ian and collecting a copy of Interspex at the British Science Fiction convention, Eastercon LX. Hope to see other friends there too on Saturday 11th April in Bradford.
Another recent book in which I have the pleasure of being mentioned is Gladys Hobson’s Still Waters Run Deep. I wrote the blurb on the back having contributed my small part by reading and making mostly unnecessary editing points.
