Some stuff from around the web that I'm blatantly posting to revive my flagging ego:
A lovely review of The Other Room over at Eva Dolan's Loitering With Intent blog. Always nice to read a review by someone perceptive who's spotted things in the stories even I didn't think of.
How The Penny Dreadnought Was Born - a new posting by me over on the PD site.
And finally, the fabulous Eight Cuts have recently done posts of great digital and analogue Christmas presents for book-lovers. I'm delighted to say The Other Room was featured in the former, but do check out all the great books listed.
