Sweet revenge

Buy your copy of Martyn Bedford's novels
It’s so many years since my first novel, Acts of Revision, was published (1996) that it’s rare for me to come across a new reference to it on the internet these days. (By “come across”, what I’m saying, of course, is that I Google myself from time to time.)
So, I was surprised and mightily pleased to find it included in a list of “all-time favourite stories on the theme of revenge”, submitted by members of the American BookRiot website. That Acts of Revision made it on to the list was flattering enough but, even more so, was to see my name sitting side by side with the likes of Euripides, Alexandre Dumas, Honore de Balzac, Victor Hugo, Emily Bronte, Herman Melville, Ken Kesey, Stieg Larsson, Gillian Flynn, Ian McEwan and Colleen McCullough. Oh, and Shakespeare.
