There are so many reasons luring me to the Maltese archipelago this year: Malta and Gozo, even with its mad traffic, and speed-walking fitness people on the promenades, is wonderfully relaxing; Gozo is the setting for my Xaghra’s Revenge fantasy (being considered for publication by a publisher); I have a Maltese writer friend, John Bonello, who met me in Sliema; Jimmy and his wife, Mary Rose, offered us the use of their Xlendi flat in Gozo; we love the Preluna hotel in Sliema – like being on a cruise ship but without sailing. The photo is of Dingli, the town of John Bonello and Jimmy. Built of limestone and surrounded by vineyards and an old world charm.
I’ll do a separate blog entry for John and his fiction.
While there I learnt that my Monk Punk fantasy story, Don’t Bite My Finger... has been published in the Black Static anthology. Link to it and great pictures and explanation is here.
