Something seems to have been wrong with the livejournal posting screen for the last several days because whenever I tried to post anything, the Net would stop working. As a result, I have quite a few bits of news to share:

1. I am on a visit to India and will remain here for another month at least.

2. My story, "Masks", has been accepted by Damazine and will be published soon.

3. My story, "The Presonic Man", won fourth place in the contest at "Whispering Spirits".

4. I am having fun in India.

Thanks, John-Mark. Once the stories are available, I will post links hoping that my online friends would enjoy them.

Congratulations! Enjoy your time in India (someplace with which I've long been fascinated and would love to visit). :-)

Congratulations on your acceptance, your win, and your having fun!

Thanks. This country is indeed fascinating but if one wants to enjoy a visit, one must choose the right time (weather-wise) and right place (population-wise). If you ever plan to visit, let me know and I will guide you to the best of my abilities.

congratulations on another sale, Ahmed--you are an inspiration!

happy travels in India. i just came back from a relaxing and invigorating month in Haiti, and remember again how wonderful that country is. (if you are interested in my trip notes, they are posted on my blog, with a few pictures.)

Congratulations on your successes. You're an inspiration. I read Angels and it's excellent. Hope you're having a wonderful time. Are you visiting relatives?

Thanks, Casey and Marian.

Marian: I am not just visiting relatives but I am also in the process increasing the number of my relatives. We are here for the marriage of my son.
