A few little things:
Tim Upperton has reviewed my latest poetry collection Men Briefly Explained in Landfall Review Online – thanks, Tim!
Here is Tim’s review: http://landfallreviewonline.blogspot.co.nz/2012/05/messages-from-red-planet.html
And here is lots more information about Men Briefly Explained, including where and how to buy it: http://timjonesbooks.blogspot.co.nz/p/men-briefly-explained.html
Michelle Elvy pointed out to me that a search for “Men Briefly Explained” on Fishpond lists my book at the top but some distinctly bizarre choices under that – Hitler: A Short Biography? The World of Mining??! Experience these bizarre search results yourself at http://www.fishpond.co.nz/advanced_search_result.php?rid=968709485&keywords=men%20briefly%20explained
As well as being a fine writer, Michelle Elvy has given a real boost to flash fiction writing in this country with her and Sian Williams’ magazine Flash Frontier and now with the announcement that 22 June will be National Flash Fiction Day. Watch out for events in your area, and check the National Flash Fiction Day website for news. Don’t forget the National Flash Fiction Competition, which closes on 1 June, either!
So, er … yeah. Back to writing those short stories!
