There was a celebratory air at the Sampsenblum household yesterday (despite the fact that I was laid up with a cold) as RR and I received our contributors' copies of The New Quarterly no. 128. We both have short stories published therein: a piece called "The Man Room" from me and a piece called "Marriage" from her. This issue also has works from various literary luminaries including Miranda Hill, Helen Humphreys, Alice Major and Karen Solie. Anyway, go check it out when you get a chance, then come back here and let me know what you think.
