So 2010 has only just begun, and I have a handful of new publications that I need to mention. They’ve all been out for at least a week (or a fortnight or even a month), but I haven’t mentioned them yet.
This is because I thought to myself “The next blog post I make will be a review of 2009, so I can’t update about anything else until I have reviewed 2009”. And then I never got around to thinking about 2009 because it’s 2010 already and I don’t want to be thinking about last year when it’s been snowing for weeks and my toes are always numb and the pipes keep freezing and I have to wear fingerless gloves just to type and this is supposed to be Scotland not bloody Svalbard.
So that’s my excuse. Now here are the new things.
- An untitled piece at Mud Luscious inspired by John Everett Millais’ painting ‘Cymon and Iphigenia’ and that blonde Aussie DJ called Ladyhawke.
- A little piece of sci-fi smut in the beautifully-designed Forest Book of Bedtime Stories.
- Some queer epistolary historical vampire erotica (seriously) at Reflection’s Edge.
4, 5, 6. And some other bits and pieces like an album review at Wears the Trousers (which was far harder to write than I expected), some NaNoWriMo chat on student radio show News Empire (you should listen to the whole show, but if time is short I’m on at 12 minutes in), and an honourable mention for the Cheshire Prize for Literature (including a mention in a Chester newspaper – a town I left at 12 and have not seen since).
I like to make promises I’ll only break, so I hereby GUARANTEE that my review of 2009 will appear any day now. Hopefully before 2011.
