By happy accident, I find myself in an Internet cafe in Canterbury (I’m in a very gloomy corner, face lit by the glow of the laptop keyboard and screen). Progress report: Still no phone, therefore no real Internet access; interested to note that I’ll be teaching introductory psychology for six hours per week, starting next week; learning the administrative ropes of Christchurch Uni; looking forward to the arrival of a friend later tonight.
Serendipitously, I’ve just received word from the good Neil Ayres that a new magazine (stewarded by him and some colleagues) has been launched. It’s called Serendipity, and you can read it for free here. Notably, it contains a short story by upcoming author Aliya Whiteley and an interview from down-at-heel pen-for-hire Ian Hocking with David Mitchell — thanks to Postmodern Housewife for transcribing it. Read and enjoy. Then leave a comment on the blog and tell them how much you enjoyed it.
…Returning to my gloomy corner.
