I have bitten the bullet and queried M&B about my partial, it is over three months and I just thought it would be better to know than not to know. That and making a faux par last night after the M&B panel discussion, when a M&B editor overheard me making a joking complaining to someone about not having heard... ho hum.
The panel discussion was great and afterwards I bought some of Matt Dunn's books. Have already finished 'The Best Man' which I throughly enjoyed. And I took the bus to Oxford... excellent service and all for £12!
