I cannot WAIT. "Postmortem" sounds very interesting - I'm going to have a look at that, too. You're right, novellas are a very tough sell, unless you approach a small independent publisher. Try this list: http://genres.ukauthors.com/modules.php?name=Content&pa=showpage&pid=425 but for God's sake, stay away from Publish America.com (in fact, treat all of them with caution initially). Regarding the review pages, yes, that happens with me as well. When I click on page 2 or Next, I get a dialogue box asking if I want to save the page to my hard drive. Most peculiar. I must ask Anna about it. (more) and gained+3

I hear it's going to be made into a movie, directed by Guillermo del Toro. Look forward to seeing how it turns out. "Run Down" seems to have divided the (few) people who've read it so far; perhaps the dark humour was a little too dark. "Postmortem" might be more to your taste, being that it's set in the same time period as The Lighthouse Keeper, and also touches on Lovecraftian themes. I've just uploaded the full version to CN. Trouble is, it's 30,000 words (too long for a short story, too short for a novel), so I can't imagine it's ever going to find a home, unless e-book "novellas" suddenly become popular.

I did get your message, thanks, and I'm going to reply to it shortly. Is the review still there? It could be just me, but the Reviews tab for The Lighthouse Keeper only seems capable of showing the first page of reviews. (more) and won+3

I posted a reply to your very kind review of The Lighthouse Keeper, but I'm not sure if you've read it, since there's been a bit of a hiccup during site maintenance and some material has done a bunk. Did you receive it? (more) and won+3
