I guess there's no reason not to mention this. My short story `Multitude' has been bought by Ian Whates of Newcon Press for his forthcoming anthology entitled Subterfuge. This came as a bit of a surprise, as I only sent it him because I thought he just fancied reading it because Eric Brown had mentioned it to him.
Once again, I'm in the presence of considerable talent. The running-list looks like this:

1. John Meaney – Emptier than Void
2. Jaine Fenn – Collateral Damage
3. Gary Couzens – Jubilee Summer
4. Juliet McKenna – Noble Deceit
5. Pat Cadigan – Tales from the Big Dark: Lie of the Land
6. Neil Williamson – Moth
7. Tony Ballantyne – Underbrain
8. Tanith Lee – Under Fog (The Wreckers)
9. Sarah Singleton – They Left the City at Night
10. Steve Longworth – The God Particle
11. Una McCormack – The Great Gig in the Sky
12. Nik Ravenscroft – Time, Like an Ever-Rolling Stream
13. Neal Asher – The Rhine’s World Incident
14. (???? -- Orbiter competition winner)
15. Dave Hutchinson – Multitude

At 14 will be the winner of a competition open to all members of the BSFA Orbiter groups, and I'm afraid I don't know who that will be, although I may have a better idea next week because there will be a limited signed edition including stories by Ian Whates, Ian Watson and Storm Constantine and I'll be trying to meet up with Big Ian at some point to do my bit for the sign-in sheets.
Anyway, the anthology's being launched at Newcon 4 in Northampton in a couple of months.

I'm on the hunt for your stories, Hutch, and so far have tracked down two anthos and your novel, The Villages. I've added them to my Amazon wishlist.

I'm going to read Tir-na-nOg tonight.

Your collections I'm still tracking.

I wonder if I'll live long enough to read all the books I've collected, especially since I'm such a poky-slow reader.

Hell, you don't have to spend real money on those things. I can send you some copies; we've got some floating around somewhere. Just let me know which ones you want.
I hope you like `Tir-na-nOg.' I'm rather fond of it. `Discreet Phenomena' is better, though.

You're a sweetheart, Hutch! Strange pleasures 1 & 2, and The villages, for starters, and anything else you've written, that you feel like sending me.

I can't thank you enough! I'll message you my address and email.

xxoo!

Tir-na-nOg is beautiful. Only a nature lover could write a tale such as this.

I'm reading Discreet Phenomena right now. I like it.

You're too kind, thank you. That was already an old story when it was finally published; I'd been writing it and rewriting it since I was about sixteen, and I do have a soft spot for it.

...says the man who's published three books in the time it's taken me to sell two short stories. Thanks, Obi-Wan.

Well, Dragons for a start, then there was your Crazed Science book. Leaving Fortusa. Actually, now I think about it, there may be even more...

Leaving Fortusa isn't out yet.

Dragons, yes. But you've sold two short stories since long after publication last year of Corrupted Science (and New Writings in the Fantastic).

So it's just one book. Hmmf!

I thank you. I regret to say I've never read any Tanith Lee (so many books, so little time) but I'm aware of who I'm sharing bookspace with. Cor.
