I've no idea if I've lost weight or not, as I don't own any scales, and I'm not sufficiently laterally challenged to notice the difference. All I know is I'm HUNGRY!!!! bangh

So how does it feel, now that you found a home for Black Pearl after all this time?

My Uncle Paul (Pavel) posted a link to this article via facebook. Worth reading to put one's own life into perspective. http://mobile.nj.com/advnj/db_266476/contentdetail.htm?contentguid=fY4KzGLb (Paul's on the right in the photo.)

Thanks for the congrats, everybody smiley

It's had a long trip, so in one way I'm glad it's found a home, but in another it's feels a bit like the end of an era. I had a hope that it would find a place at a pro rate of pay, and I suppose it's vaguely possible it might as a reprint elsewhere. Still, a penny a word plus contributor copy is better than a kick up the backside with an open-toed sandal, isn't it afro

Ed (and everyone else for that matter), here are two of the main horror story reprint markets, UK and US.

http://www.stephenjoneseditor.com/markets01.htm

http://ellen-datlow.livejournal.com/317073.html

Ellen Datlow accepts submissions all year round, but Stephen Jones only accepts submissions from towards the end of the year.

"I was very pleased that there was somebody from the same place, that we had some common ground," Loewner said. "We just started our friendship, so we are trying to find out when we can meet. And we talk. We talk about our old times. He’s the only one that understands what happened there."........so much is bottled up


i touched on this in ALLAKAZZAM!, but wrote more about it from the perspective of the 2nd generation after. [2nd generation?..... a bit like the backwash from a tsunami].


do i detect a family resemblance there, delf? Wink

I feel like that about writing in general at the moment  Sad
