WHO'S A CLEVER BOY, THEN?
Picked up a copy of the Gardner Dozois-edited The Mammoth Book of Best New SF 16 today. The Luscious Lyn had a read while I was out of the house, and found that Father Muerte & The Theft has made the Recommended Reading List, and I copped a mention in the volume's introduction as having published interesting work. Apart from the rub to the ego (I wasn't aware I'd made the list at all), it's good to be given an indication of the level I need to be writing at on a regular basis.
Now, all I have to do is manage it :)
