A few days ago I reviewed Brian Aldiss's excellent 'Bury My Heart at W. H. Smith's' on this blog. This morning my subscriber copy of The Frogmore Papers arrived and I see that Mr Aldiss has a short stoy in it! Not only that, but a story which - on skimming - relates to his novel Frankenstein Unbound, later filmed by Roger Corman.
I'm going to keep the story to read after my own reading tomorrow, because (a) it will feel like a reward and (b) I'm too nervous already to read with any kind of care and attention, but I'm thrilled to have it to look forward to.
And (ahem) final reminder:
