A DREAMING COME TRUE

Just received news from the eminent Mister Jack Dann that he is accepting my story In From the Snow for Dreaming Again, the sequel to the World Fantasy Award-winning 1999 anthology Dreaming Down Under, whcih he co-edited with Janeen Webb.

Much pleased, me. IFtS is one of the few stories I rescued from the heat death of the hard drive, and represents, at least to me, an advance in my craft. DA could be a major milestone, and I'm happy indeed to be counted amongst its numbers.

I might just raise a glass tonight.

Congrat's, Lee. I had similar news on thursday, should be a fine anthology me thinks.

Much pleased should be you :-)

Much pleased I am. And glad to be joining you in the ToC, Trent. The only other authors I know of so far are two of my boys from Clarion, Jason Fisher & Chris Green, so there needs to be a couple of older heads to show them up :)

Well bloody done, old son. This is marvellous news!

I'm also richly impressed with your weight-loss efforts. Well done!

Martin said...

That's awesome, mate, congrats! I didn't even know they were doing another Dreaming... makes me wish I'd, you know, written some short fiction lately! :)

Congratulations, Lee. Keep up the good work.

Thanks, guys. I'm very pleased with this one: it's a sign that my change in focus is working, and that's a big relief. Hopefully I can piggyback some other good sized sales on the back of this and the Dr Who story, and take that next step.

congratulations Lee, very impressive. I didn't make the cut. Not that I'm bitter...

It looks like a good project: I do have some contact details if anyone plans to submit, but I'd suggest doing so reeeeeeeeaaaallllll soon......

And of course, more details will be spruiked as to release etc when I know them.
