Second print run delivered yesterday. Just 10 copies left of the first edition which I'll bring along to NEWCON4 on Saturday.

I'll be reading from Hunter's Moon which is in Bull Running for Girls. This story is set in Bordeaux but flashes back to an earlier terrible fire in Manchester. Based on my own experience.

Also for my sins I'm on this panel.
5.00 Panel: Sex Sells, But Should We
Buy?
Intro: David Howe & Sam Stone
read erotic poetry
Ken MacLeod, Storm Constantine,
Ally Bird, Sam Stone, Roberto
Quaglia, Ian Watson (mod).

Hopefully Ian Watson will keep this on track or perhaps not. Should be fun  :)

Another review. This one from The Whitby Gazette. The online version has a few mistakes in it. Should be caul bearer not pall bearer and Simon Clark should be listed as horror writer. Few other typos too but hey, goodish coverage for horror writers..

Never ask a geneologist where she is from  :) Cheshire pre- 1807. Then Salford. Then Manchester. Now live near Sheffield.

Shipwrecked, David  :)
