Thanks to the crit group here on CD and at the BSFA group, my Target Practice SF story was sold today to Encounters Magazine.

Other news is that ARIA: Left Luggage is on free loan to Amazon Prime customers for 3 months and free to all Kindle customers for 5 days from Dec 26.

Enjoy Egypt, again, Ed!

I did an in-depth crit on a couple of chapters of a friend's novel over the weekend. Forgot how valuable and interesting and enjoyable doing the crits are. Most of what I used was what I learned from all the critting that used to go here :-)

I belong to other crit groups but like you, Del, learnt most of what I know and editing skills from here on CD. Also I'd paid for content editing on my first two novels from JBWB and the editor there, Doug, lacerated my work mercilessly but I learnt so much, such as 'expunge your thats'. Also had some personal crits on Left Luggage from Allan Guthrie of 'Hunting down the pleonasms' fame, although if I let him have his way entirely then the novel would have ended up as a paragraph.

So, I'm not usually one to be sad when famous people die, but I was a bit down about Peter O'Toole. He was one of the good ones. I was cheered a bit by finding this.  http://www.amazon.com/Charlemagne-Omens-Death-Christopher-Lee/dp/B00CIVOVB8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1387454767&sr=8-1&keywords=christopher+lee

At 91 years old Christpher Lee has just recorded his first Metal album, and it's good in that corny Metal kind of way. Go Dracula!

Apropos the above, a lady at the baby club we take our 1-yr-old grandson to, recorded my rendition of the Teddy Bear's picnic, complete with props. I have not asked her for a copy. If I see it I'll probably never sing to my grandkids again!

Game of cribbage and a couple of pints of stout in a traditional pub last night. I'm hip with the scene, me.

Well, that's me for the year cheers Just packing a few bits and bobs, finishing off odd jobs, etc. Flying tomorrow. Set my phone to divert to one of my oppos, so nobody is going to be bugging me for at least a week.

I haven't spent much time here this year as I would have liked, but it's always nice to know there are a few friendly folks still dropping by. I may not get a chance to get online until I get back, so I'll take this opportunity to wish everybody here at Doom a very merry Christmas and a great New Year smiley
