    Hi Martin,
    Picked up your book one big echo in printmakers gallery in St Ives, just finished it. Best thing I’ve read this year! Lovely writing, great characters & totally original stories. Please write some more!

    Thanks very much, Sue. Really heartening to read that.

    I have written another collection, but I’ll need to see how many stories I end up chucking out before I can tell if I have enough material.

    (Ruthless self-editing is the key, at least for me!)

    Of course, if I had any sense I would have written a novel, not another short story collection. I’m working on that…
