My health has been a little dodgy recently and, with a minor hospital procedure this week, I cannot say that I had been in a good mood. However with every cloud there comes a silver lining – and I got two!
The first was that the magazine Midnight Echo bought one of my short horror stories. Yay! The story is called “Alive!” and examines one alternative for prolonging existence. Apparently it will be appearing in Issue 14. Given that my goal is to be a science fiction and fantasy author, it is interesting that the only fiction stories that I have sold to date are horror.
The second piece of good news is that one of my graphics has appeared in an article in Science Direct. The article is entitled Radiation Management in Coronary Angiography: Percutaneous Coronary Intervention for Chronic Total Occlusion at the Frontier and it is by Glenn R. Ison Dip Med Rad, Usaid Allahwala FRACP, James C.Weaver FRACP, PhD, FCSANZ. My diagram shows the flow of scatter radiation during an x-ray. It’s not a particularly brilliant diagram, but it serves its purpose in supporting this paper – and that is the important thing.
So yes, I’m quite pleased.
