Wednesday, February 26, 2003 is an interview with the author of the worst novel published recently in America. It made me smile.

Also Ellen Datlow took "Feeders and Eaters" for the Horror side of Year's Best Fantasy and Horror (Terri Windling had already taken the story from Tori's tourbook for the fantasy side of things), while David Hartwell took "October in the Chair" for his Year's Best Fantasy and Stephen Jones took "October in the Chair" for his Best New Horror.

Dear Mr. Gaiman,
This is not really a question, but I can't seem to find an email address anywhere on this page to mail you with. If you were interested, the "Tiger Balm Gardens" mentioned by Janice Tay is now called "Haw Par Villa", and you can find out more about it here:

The second URL even has a table describing the various punishments a soul had to go through in the Chinese afterlife. Thought you might find that interesting.

Do get well soon!

From Singapore,
Derek Lin

I'm working on it. The blood tests were encouraging (they meant that I didn't have Lyme Disease). Still hurts to type, and to get into a position where I can read or watch TV. Listening to lots of Radio Four, though -- thank heavens for the internet.
