Unfurl the bunting, mix up a vat of daiquiris for quietselkie, get that barrel of Guinness from out back for lilithsaintcrow, make up a pot of decaffeinated tea for realthog, and pray join me on the village green to perform the Druidic Mime Routine Of Welcome (discovered in a drawer in the cellar of Sir John Soane's Museum in a wax-sealed envelope marked `If You Value The Continued Existence Of Humanity Do Not Perform This Mime Routine) for txtriffidranch, fellow Prime survivor, is among us. Welcome, Paul.

This is the villages; there is dark chocolate galore, and only dark chocolate.
You can read out the Killing Joke if I can use the insanity-inducing bicycle from The Fourth Policeman at the same time. Between us, we ought to be able to bring down civilisation.

LOL. You've done nothing wrong; I saw your posts over at catvalente's place. Most of us here are writers and editors and nobody's going to try and change your mind about writing and publishing, but I thought what happened to you was a crying shame so I thought I'd say hi and, as someone who once edited for Prime, to apologise for what happened to you, because god knows someone ought to. Pull up a chair, put your feet up, grab the beverage of your choice, have fun.

That's right! After all, we should never be seen as being difficult, because no publisher will touch someone who stands up for copyrights, contracts, or even an accurate publication date!

You do that? You completely unreasonable bugger! Next you'll be telling me publishers shouldn't peremptorily cancel contracted anthologies just before the editor delivers the final text and certainly after he's given all the selected authors the good news.

As the earth said, "That ain't no scum of mine."

Nothing wrong with Tesco's vodka. Old Russian family, Tesco.
