December Links

I am in this anthology with friends Avis Hickman-Gibb, Bill West and Sarah Hilary.

The Canary Murder Case was written for the guidelines and it was an interesting challenge.
Suspicion was adapted to this challenge but written some time ago.
Pit Stop is a nice little humourous Sci Fi Christmas treat.
Chaos and Light - family - it's what Christmas is about ;)
The Santa Suit is up at Micro Horror. What's it got in its pocketses?
A Matter of Taste is at Big Toe Review. Christmas is a time of traditions.
Magical Thinking examines thought itself and even scepticism, in a rather sceptical way.
Song of the Winter Earth it's short.

Leonard Cohen at last

I've been a fan for nearly 40 years and at last got to see Leonard Cohen at the MEN Arena in Manchester on Sunday evening. The standing ovations that we gave him were nothing. He gave himself totally to every moment of performance and every nuance of every song and he gave generous mention to every one of his team of musicians, technicians and roadies. Did I say performance? I don't think it was a performance as such - it was Leonard Cohen as honest and human as he has always been which is why he has drawn so many to him, young and old over these many years.

Hello to Sharon and Yiar (hope I spelt that correctly) who'd come all the way from Israel and with whom we shared a taxi and now our memories too.
