I'm quite exhilarated to see the cover of the 40th anniversary issue of Prairie Fire with my name on the cover. I haven't received my copy in the mail yet, but anticipation is always at least as pleasurable as the event itself.
I issue this disclaimer to anyone who is thinking of reading my story, The Bath Lottery. It's l-o-n-g, as short stories go, and while it's a story about women, it's not an upbeat story of women's empowerment and solidarity, and there are no hearty laughs in it. But it's a story about the basic goodness of human beings in desperate times.
If you do read it, I'll be interested in hearing what you think.
