self publicity

the new issue of Transmission is out now. it has one of my short stories in it. you can find out more about it here. it looks very nice. i liked the illustration that goes next to my story. it is a 'pulp fiction' themed issue. my friend Nick also has a couple of things in it.

the manchester blog awards thing is tonight. it starts at 6:30, at matt and phreds jazz club. i am on at 7:05 precisely. i have a ten minute slot. i think i'm going to read a 'condensed' version of the whole untitled 'supermarket nightmare'. i'm not sure yet.

i am 'competing' against these blogs:

the airport diaries
a free man in preston
community fair

they got reviewed (including mine) on this blog.

my flat is damp sometimes. i am still wearing my dressing gown and coughing a bit and my hands feel strange.

jeeze... i hope you win, in the interests of fairness, though the other three do look hopeless... why don't other bloggers of the literary persusasion use a bit of i mag in ation, and why don't they foreground their fiction in a more obvious way?

Hello, your reading seemed to go well last night. Congratulations and all that.

(That review guy seems to be a right arse - who died & made him king??)

p.s. I am fully prepared for the inevitable 'lay off, he's my best mate/grandad/alter ego' etc.
