A Major Award

Back in March 2012, my short story "Your First Real Rocket Ship" won Third Prize in the Friends of the Merril Short Story Contest (DW). In addition to being available on the Toronto Public Library website for 90 days, they also announced that an artist had been commissioned to produce a book with the winning stories -- limited to five numbered copies. One for each author, the Merril collection and the artist.

Over the weekend copy number 3 arrived at the P.O. Box and Mrs. Dr. Phil brought it by on Sunday. I took a couple of pictures with the Kindle Fire HD's camera, and through various machinations got them edited and FTP'd the pictures to my website via a remote Linux desktop.
