Two Reviews

I am quite happy today. I've seen two flattering reviews of my work in the last 24 hours. One is for a short story in the Caine Prize 2006 Workshop Anthology (ten sweet days on the banks of Crater Lake in Kenya, dodging hyenas and leopards) and the other is for a couple of poems in "500 Nigerian Poets" (anthology ed by Jerry Agada). Actually, both reviews are only a few lines each, but still...

It's difficult to believe that the review of the poetry anthology was the FIRST intimation I had of my appearance therein. And this is an anthology that was published last year (2005). I didn't get an acknowledgement of submission (it was a hard-copy sub), no notifications of acceptance, nothing whatsoever. No hint, until yesterday, Sunday, when I stumbled on the review in the literary pages of The Sun, and found a commendation attached to my name. Only the good Lord knows how much of my work is floating out there on printed pages without my knowledge. (Oh vain vain me!)

The Caine Anthology review is online.
