A blog for authors and readers by publishers. By Wordsmack - a South African speculative science fiction publisher. Wordsmack accepts short stories, novellas and novels on a year-long submissions basis.

The Gathering - Anne Enright This book won the Man Booker 2007. I enjoyed this, but mostly for it's Irishness... It is very well written, but I found the style a bit flighty. Definitely the type of book you should read in one or two sittings (not like me). I would like to compare it to the other contestants to see why it won. I would recommend it though.
