Woot and Squee!

Just had a bit of nice news, which is always good on a Monday morning and better still following a six-day week: my short story 'Salvaje' is to be published in a forthcoming edition of Charles Black's The Black Book Of Horror series. (Edited for update: just heard this morning that it will appear in the Ninth Black Book of Horror. Woot, squee and happy dance!)

The Black Books hark back to the good old days of the Pan Books of horror- in the best sense. The stories tend to the more gruesome end of the horror, but they're usually worth reading. 'Salvaje' features a character I hope to write about again, but I'm saying no more than that. It's a story I'm fond of, so it's good to see it find a home at last.

Damn, I went and squeed again. I really must stop that.

SIMON, I'VE TOLD YOU ABOUT THE SQUEEING!

But very well done, I suppose that's a good reason to squee ...

Hey, Chris! Good to hear from you mate. Hope you're well?

Sorry about the squeeing. There used to be treatment on the NHS for that, but since the Tories got back in... ;-)
