Ten years ago, in 2006, I'd just had several landmarks in my early career as an author:
April 2006 saw my tenth publication, and my first story to appear in print: A Word in the Right Place in Scifantastic #4
In June 2006 The Grey Void was published in Aphelion #102. This was my first sequel, a follow up to The Grey Hole published in Aphelion the previous year.
Also in June, Artefact Nouveau was published in the English edition of Greek magazine Universe Pathways. This was my first reprint in a magazine other than the original, Fluctuations having been reprinted by Bewildering Stories the previous year.
