Nearly forgot to mention that this little tale (a former Eurofiction round winner, no less) is now up at Every Day Fiction. And some very interesting news arrived yesterday, but I can’t reveal it quite yet. More later on in the month …
Just got my copy of this today from the nice people at Leaf Books. The poems inside are the winner, runner-up and all the commended entries from the most recent Leaf poetry competition – including my piece “Pants Outside Trousers, Big Letter H on T Shirt, Here to Save the World”.
