Abnormal Service

Note to self: when you have flu like symptoms and are a wee bit delirious with a fever don’t watch a television show about a plague that kills most of the population, it will give you nightmares.

Checked my email today for the first time in 48 hours (that’s a record) to find an acceptance from Cat Rambo and Sean Wallace of Fantasy Magazine for Trench Foot - if I still had my voice I would have whooped.

Normal service will be resumed when the world stops spinning.

Thanks guys, the room is only spinning half the day now. :)

Bobbie - 23 so far (ahem!) this year, but I have written about 60 stories (and need to cut back on them next year).

Aaron - you forgot Sand :)

Ah, the flu sucks. Maybe you will find that an acceptance is the surefire cure for such an ailment.
