Cleveland W. Gibson writes about...
a recent success
I just thought I'd drop you a line. Lots to tell, as always but here is an exciting bit. I'm being showcased on the Laura Hird website at the end of this month. In my bio I've given Bewildering Stories a mention. So I've got my own back, in the best possible way.
You did ask if I'd care to update my bio on the BwS site. Well I've just finished doing it for Laura Hird. I'll send you a similar copy for you to use. My copy to her was written very tight with a certain number of words in mind. But I think it still came out right.
On the Laura Hird site she is publishing a story of mine called “Charles Trenet's La Mer.” It is dramatic and quite topical because of the tsunami in the Far East. Below is a little of what she said about the story.
Best wishes for now,
What a beautiful story. Was extremely moved by it and would love to feature it on the Showcase section on the site.
Launching Issue 9 of the site in February and it would be great to feature it then if possible.
Thanks for sending the story. Look forward to featuring your work on the site.
All the best for 2005,

Well, congratulations, Cleveland. Laura Hird’s website is pretty... massive. Perhaps you could tell us what it’s about? You’ll also be interested in this issue’s News bulletin: the contrast between her website and ours is not just striking, it’s staggering.
Anyway, we’ll be glad to update your bio, if you wish. And we’d very much like to have another story from you, too. This month’s story contest is a golden opportunity. Keep up the good work and thanks for remembering us.
