I was delighted when an early review of Words from a Glass Bubble' described it as being a collection illustrating 'how the short story ought to be written nowadays' or words to that effect. (Tim Love's Literary References)
I heard this week that a tutor on a University Creative Writing course is using it next year as a set text. And today, I heard that a second CW teacher is using some of my story openers to inspire new writers to take their version of the story forward, with some good results.
To say I am delighted that my work is being used like this is an understatement.
Thank you to both, if you are reading.
