200th Post and the first of 2011

Well 2010 has been and gone and I can't say I'm sorry to see it go. It wasn't a very happy year, especially the last of it. However, 2011 has arrived bearing glad tidings and I hope it is an omen of good things to come.
Two reviews of my work have made me extremely happy, the first is in Grim Reviews and it picks Null Immortalis as being in its top three supernatural books of 2010 and says of my story:

Bob Lock's "Haven't You Ever Wondered?" stars D.F. Lewis himself and Null Immortalis as meta-fictional constructs threatened by inter-dimensional interlopers. This is an inspired and unusual sci-fi story that is especially pleasing to longtime Nemonymous devotees.

Second review is of The Empathy Effect and can be found over at the Morpheus Tales website where the reviewer actually says:

Lock’s book rivals Koontz’s Odd Thomas and provides a wonderfully subtle and engaging story, and with Cooper Jones, a unique voice and a character you can’t help but love, along with the irresistible Alby (The General), creating a winning formula. . This story definitely deserves a sequel.

Wow! To be mentioned in the same sentence as Dean Koontz is one thing but to be compared to him is the highest of praise, I'm blushing :)
NB The Morpheus review does contain many spoilers.

Many thanks to both reviewers :)
