Health update - recovering

Good news. Yes, today I can breathe without the aid of menthol nose balm - what a relief!

Bad news. On the other hand, I missed the British summer, because it happened on the two days I was totally unable to appreciate it.

Good news. I've just had my page proofs for the story to appear in Ambit Magazine (issue 185) in July. It looks very good and they'd set it perfectly, which always makes me feel happy - when page proofs are perfect you have a certain confidence in the journal. It would be odd if I didn't have total trust in Ambit, as one of Britain's longest established and most innovative literary magazines, taking stories only from the thousands of unsolicited submissions they get each year, but it's nice to have one's confidence confirmed.
