Ending The Week On A High: BLUE PEAR

I just found out that my story "Blue Pear" is being featured in "Best Of Metazen"... I'm thrilled that Frank Hinton, editor of Metazen, thought it worthy of this honour. I really like Metazen. It's well-presented, quite innovative and that little bit "different" to other e-zines I've appeared in. Thank you, Frank!


  1. Yay! A wonderful story, the "best of" is most certainly deserved!

  2. Hi Nora – I just read the story and I think it's great! Congrats!
