Entering Wonderland



We're off to London today - my first time since the flare and flyaway collars of the 1970s when I was a wee nipper - for the launch of Marie O'Regan & Paul Kane's latest anthology, Wonderland.

The Bestwick doesn't have a story in it.

I suspect we are/should be very sad about that, but I am way too delighted that several of my favourite authors are hiding within its pages and they are going to be at the signing. Speaking of that, it's taking place between 12:00 and 13:00 at Forbidden Planet on Shaftesbury Avenue, which is by the Shaftesbury Theatre and there I go again getting all excited. Following it, the HWA are having a meet-up at The Craft Beer Co. in Covent Garden. You don't have to be a member to attend. At least, I hope you don't as I haven't been a member for years.

We're going to have a fabulous time.

This is my second collection (the first is now out of print) and I am very, very excited.
