    Hit in the North
     
    I spent today preparing my session on Heaven in Ordinary for March's Greenbelt Regional Angels Day: Leeds and the North. I won't give too much away as it's all new material and I know some readers will be there. Except to say that in keeping with the occasion and to reinforce my 2007 M62 connections it's also all-Northern. And that in the process of unearthing some good local material I came across Comma Press who have recently published The Book of Leeds, a collection of short fiction from some of the city's most celebrated writers, with stories from every decade from the last fifty years in the city's history. Not only that but they also publish smaller volumes of Leeds Stories, Manchester Stories, Newcastle Stories and Liverpool Stories, and The Book of Liverpool is forthcoming. All from a third floor office at the back of Piccadilly. There's a piece of regional co-operation which really seems to be working.
