'Hear Not..." review and First Acceptance of 2009

Over in The Fix’s From the Podosphere section, Paul S Jenkins has this to say about my short story, Hear Not the Murmur on the Wind, which appeared on pulp podcast site Well Told Tales last month:

This is a ghostly revenge story, told from the viewpoint of the ghost, which is a common theme, but here given arresting atmosphere by good writing, complemented by J. B. Goodspeed’s reading. A man returns to haunt the wife who murdered him, but finds not what he expects. Short and effective.

In other news...my first acceptance of 2009 - the good folks over at Words and Images magazine have expressed an interest in publishing one of two flash fictions I submitted to them in November. We’re still finalising details at the moment, but I should have definite confirmation soon.

Nice comments on the pod publication. It must be excitin' to hear someone else readin' your words. It probably highlights the peaks and troughs a little better than just readin' it yourself too.

Congratulations on the acceptance - I'm still waitin' for my 2009 cherry to pop.

:o)

Thanks, folks. I've got some longer works with a handful of tough markets right now. Fingers crossed something comes out of those...
