I almost forgot after I informed teh tribe that someone wanted to publish one of my stories in a fanzine, I was heartily congratulated by them....
Mum, "What is it that Hi-Fi rubbish you like?"
Me: "Yes it was the story I spent the Summer writing, and the lady whose story inspired me, liked it enough to ask to print it."
Mum, "Ahh well I won't be reading that will I? It's not my sort of thing, but I suppose there must be other people out there who like that sort of stuff."
Steve just looked at her and then told it it was great news, I know there was a complement in there somewhere, I'll find it if kills me! But bless she really doesn't get fandom at all.
