Had a nice surprise today, received a free contributor's copy of The BSF&FA Survey Book which I filled in a questionnaire for some time ago. It has approximately eleven questions, ten of which were a repeat of questions for a similar survey carried out twenty years ago by Paul Kincaid for the Mexicon Convention in 1989. I forgot all about it. So imagine me today opening it and seeing that I'm quoted in it three times! I find myself amongst 84 other contributors who responded to the survey, BIG names such as Joe Abercrombie, Brian Aldiss, Iain Banks, Neil Gaiman, Paul McCauley, China Mieville, Michael Moorcock, Richard Morgan, Charles Stross to name but a few, but ALL of them heroes or heroines of mine in the writing world. Many TTA members too. And I'm in there with them! My name's in the middle of this prestige bunch of scribblers on the back cover! So, from now on I'm going to say 'Yes, I've been published in a book with... ' and name drop the other eighty four writers :)

Umm... one problem however, in the contributor's section they mention I've been published in Interzone, which I haven't. I apologize for that, I'm sure I didn't say I had. I'd like to be published in Interzone though :)
