A Winter’s Chill Strikes Hampstead

On Sunday I took the family along to the New End Theatre in Hampstead for an evening of chilling stories expertly told by Miles Barden and Joshua Dickinson (including a new version of my own piece, “After Michelangelo”), and we all had a great time. I’ll leave the review to the far more eloquent Oscar Windsor-Smith here, noting in passing that the show turned a profit, and that the team are actively looking for a venue for a further presentation prior to taking it to the Edinburgh Fringe. An excellent result all round, I’d say.

  1. Jon: Who is the Oscar Windsor-Smith of whom you speak and who posts at Every Day Fiction with a sly wink and a nudge? Is he a real person or is he just you, having us on?

    Congratulations on your recent successes, BTW. I have been remiss in commenting but I’ve been busy. I just sent off a 3,000-word piece to Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine and a 6,000-word SF piece to WOTF (I just made the quarterly deadline).

    P.S. If Oscar is for real, does he blog?

  2. Many thanks, K.C. and good luck with your submissions! Oscar W-S most definitely does exist, and is a highly talented writer in his own right – watch out for him in 2009. He doesn’t have his own blog yet, but I believe that he is intending to establish a web presence one of these days. The big question is whether or not the internet can cope with the resulting barrage of bad puns …

  3. Jon, I have only now (09/03/09) found your very flattering comments. Thank you. And sincere apologies for not having visited here more frequently. I do remember you telling me that K.C. didn’t believe I existed, but I thought you were having me on. See how complicated life can get when you’re a joker? And I should know, people always seem to laugh hardest at me when I trying to be serious. It’s hell I tell you!

  4. Hehe. You should see what else I’ve been saying about you 🙂

    Actually, what I’m wondering now is what the hell was I doing spending New Year’s Eve posting stuff to this blog. I need to get out more.
