Eric gets Tanya on the Couch!

Among the mighty good stuff on Eric Forbes Good Book Guide blog is this interview with award winning short story writer Tania Hershman who seems to have some very original scenarios in her fiction :
... a woman sets up a roadside cafe on the way to the South Pole, a grieving widow bakes science cakes, a girl is paralysed when it rains, another talks to her knees.
Tanya's debut collection, The White Road and Other Stories, was published by Salt Publishing in September. She has also set up a
website devoted to reviewing short-story collections called The Short Review which I'm sure the fiction writers among you (and aficionados of the form) will enjoy reading.

She is currently doing a blog book-tour (great way for authors to promote their work!) and Eric's blog is one of the stops along the way.

There's plenty more interesting content on Eric's blog, much of which finds itself into copies of Quill. Eric and May Lee interview another short story writer, Claire Wigfall, who won the BBC National Short Story award.
