First Appearance in a Journal

This month my name made its first appearance in print in an academic journal.

The article is a review of Chris Beckett's novel The Holy Machine and it appears in issue #108 of Foundation: The International Review of Science Fiction - you'll have to get hold of a copy to read the review but essentially I thought it was a great book.

I'm especially honoured that my review appears in an issue with a special article by Brian Aldiss, an author who has a special association for me as he was receiving an honorary doctorate at the same graduation ceremony where I received my BA in 2008.

Hopefully the future will see many more such reviews entering print, and eventually critical articles too, but until then I'm just happy to see my name in print (and I'll be even happier when it gets catalogued onto the University Library!).

  1. Congrats, Glyn. I've been published quite a few times now, but it's still exciting to yourself alongside a famous name in print.
