Acute episodes

My copy of The Lancet's end of year fiction special arrived this morning. They've called it Acute Episodes which is a very fitting name I think and its a beautifully made publication; it's A5 size, the front cover is glossy, the pages are high quality paper, the typography is excellent and the photographic illustrations are brilliant.

There's something so satisfying about seeing your story in print and for me its all about the tactile quality of the publication and the feeling of solidity - you can put your words on a shelf and they won't float away.
