I am happy to report that my story "The Language of the Nameless Region" has been accepted by "Supernatural Tales" magazine. As the story is distinctly wintery, ST's editor David Longhorn may hold on to it until the next winter issue. I will keep you posted.
What's most satisfying about this acceptance is that "The Language of the Nameless Region" was the half-forgotten treasure I'd described in my last posting. Sometimes a little distance is needed before the worth of a story can be appreciated.
Elsewhere: I was pleased to learn that Neil Gaiman was recently awarded the prestigious Newbery Medal for his tastily Gothic children's novel, The Graveyard Book. So, on the off-chance he should ever stumble upon this blog: Congratulations, Neil!
