I discovered this morning, browsing Twitter (as you do), that “Looking for Laika” made the longlist of nominees for the British Science Fiction Association Awards! It’s a pretty full list of nominees, with some quality stories on there, so it’s pretty awesome to have made the longlist.
And “Naming the Bones” has been reviewed by John Langan in the January edition of Locus Magazine. He had some very nice things to say about it, and I’m thrilled that my first ever review in a print magazine is a good one. (Having a book of mine appear in a print magazine – and Locus Magazine, no less! – is a bit of a ‘bucket list’ ambition for me!)
Not a bad way to start 2018!

This is outstanding news! What a great way to start your new year…Congratulations!
Thank you! 😀
❤ thank you!
I’ve just finished your Laika story. It is very moving, superbly written; perhaps not the best thing to read when you wake up in the middle of the night. I look forward to reading more of your work. Best wishes.
Thank you very much Jon, I’m really glad you liked the story (and apologise for any nightmares I may have caused!) I really appreciate you taking the time to tell me so.
