Postscripts 20/21

Just yesterday I received my author copy of the latest Postscripts, and a mighty fine production it is, too. As a contributor, my copy came in a presentation tray with soft velvety lining (just visible behind the hand in the pic). Naturally, I turned to my own story, Black Fragmentaria, on page 103 first (well, just because!), and started to read. Feels good! And, strange to relate, I got an oddly different sense of the words which I wrote (and reread during revisions), a consequence of seeing them in the solid reality of book form. Kinda gives them a certain authority. Just hope the story finds and entertains some readers out there. You can find a link to PS Publishing on the lefthand sidebar.

    I get that feeling all the time when my words go from my draft blog to the public one. No matter how much proofing and rewriting I do, there’s always something I spot when I know everyone else will see it now. ;)

    Yeah, Mike – Pete’s got a somewhat eccentric attitude towards mailings. My copy arrived weeks ago, and it’s been out long enough to have been reviewed in January’s Locus and recommended for the British Fantasy Award for best anthology. There are too many highlights to to pick out but if you like Paul Park’s story, he’s got another in the same vein in the January F&SF that is even better, in my opinion.

    John – don’t worry about it; the important thing is that you bought a ticket and came along on the night. I like your green monster avatar, btw. :-D
