Very nice. Congratulations. But if it is under the rose, why is it public?

Don't ask me. Ask hutch0.

It's a long story.

And considerably longer after one's been hitting the Clan McTesco's Six-Week-Old, no doubt.

It's still a long story, as well you know.

Hmm, you get to close the anthology -- interesting...

I'm not familiar enough with any of the other writers to judge by name; but, going by title alone, "The Tale of a More Ancient, Ancient Mariner" sounds in particular like a story I'd like to read.

"Hmm, you get to close the anthology -- interesting..."

At a guess, it's because mine is by a fair margin the longest story in the book.

I had to put it somewhere...

You're just sort of hoping no one'll get that far, eh?

I was thinking if I put it in the middle of the book nobody would be able to read any further... ;-)

Because they'd have been so busy plaguing Directory Inquiries for the Nobel Committee's phone number, you mean?

`Many an entreaty and oft.' You asked me once.

*sigh*

Is there no poetry in your soul?

Poetry? I'm a journalist...!

Perhaps I was divinely spared so I could get some more reading done... :)

Exactly. Him Upstairs thought: "I'd better bump up the readership of Under the Rose somehow, so . . ."
