Nice Things of the Week Saturday 17th June Part Two: First Anniversary, Death By Water and Tor.com...
Last month, the ever-reignng Cate and I celebrated our first year of marriage. My anniversary present to her was a weekend away in Barmouth, in a lovely 17th century cottage. The other night my parents came over and Dad got talking about his childhood in Barmouth. We showed him a picture of the place where we stayed... and it only turned out to be my great-grandparents' old home.
Also, a couple of sales.
My short story 'The Tarn' will be published in The Beauty of Death 2: Death By Water, due out from Independent Legions Publishing this autumn. The TOC is still being finalised, but thus far includes Ramsey Campbell, Peter Straub, Adam Nevill, Lucy Snyder and many more.
Last and MOST DEFINITELY NOT least... (can we have a drum roll and maybe a fanfare please, maestro...)
My novelette Breakwater has been acquired by the mighty Ellen Datlow for Tor.com and will be published in 2018!
TOR. DOT. COM.
There are really no words to describe how delighted I am about this.
Many thanks (again!) to Ellen, and to all at Tor.
