National Short Story Day 2010 and a Granta review

We've just had National Short Story Week, and now, on the shortest day of the year, we've got National Short Story Day.  Apt, eh?  If you've already on your Christmas holidays and are stuck for something to do to help you avoid the dreaded last-minute shopping rush, have a look at their website - there's short story events organised in several cities around the country all day today.  And in an appropriate conjunction, my review of the new Granta anthology - The Granta Book of the Irish Short Story - is live at Bookmunch right now.

Oh pantaloons, if I'd known it was Short Story Day I would have taken a day off work and spent the time raging at a blank screen whilst hating myself. Dammit.

Major fail for you! I'm distracting myself from the blank screen by reading webcomics and making endless cups of tea.
