Stephen King wants to be my friend.

Actually, Stephen King is my friend. Over on MySpace that is. So are Roy Kesey, Charlie Williams, Robin Slick. And a whole host of other good people including some bloke called Kurt Vonnegut. Jesus! I mean that's like saying, God is my friend, is it not? Oh, some people do say that, I suppose.

The internet is bringing down the barriers, is all I can say. Between the writer and the reader, the published and the unpublished, the great and the green.

Only today I had a little exchange with the novelist and publisher Susan Hill, over on the WriteWords website.

It's kind of freaky. But exciting. More of the same (freaky but exciting, that is) here. Well, I had to get a plug in somehow.
