Short story buff extraordinaire

Apparently that's me! Made me smile, that did. I have written a guest post for the wonderful folk over at Vulpes Libris for their short story week, which begins tomorrow. In today's post, Next Week on Vulpes Libris, they introduce the week by saying
Next week will be something of a short story theme week on Vulpes, with some old favourites, some twentieth-century classics, something brand new, and a guest piece from Tania Hershman, short story buff extraordinaire.
I love that. No idea what it means or how exactly I qualify... I don't feel like a "buff extraordinaire", I feel like someone who is desperately trying to catch up after all those years at university spent memorising equations rather than reading great literature but still knowing she has a long way to go.

Well, anyway, my post will be up on Wednesday, and I hope it might prove a little provocative but mainly inspirational. We'll see - more about that in a few days.

Congratulations, Tania!

I gave The Short Review (and you!) a plug over at Every Day Fiction - in fact they asked about in one of the interview questions and it was a pleasure to talk about it.

Happy First Book Day!!
