Praise for Mark Smith

One of my fellow writers and friend, Mark Smith has recently become the recipient of the award for Best Classic Short Story on the Demonminds website for his story, Breakdown. To obtain this award Mark's story proved to be extremely popular as thousands of votes were cast in the space of a year. He is especially humbled because Breakdown was one of his earlier works, too - well done, Mark!

Also, Mark has had the pleasure of being nominated for the prestigious 2006 Aurealis Awards. Talk about a double whammy. He's demonstrated that he has what it takes to make it in this cut throat industry and I wish him all the best with it.

Awwww, you made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
Thanks so much for the support, and for everyone else out there keep an eye on this Chris fellow. I've got a feeling he's one fellow Bendigonian that going to be haunting your dreams very shortly - well his stories will be anyway.
