An embarrassment of riches

Recently I received notification from the BBC that I have been given a place on the forthcoming series of ‘Brain of Britain’ on Radio 4. It had taken me three attempts to be accepted. I was delighted. The recording is in Salford in November.
This afternoon, I received an email from Michael Stewart (in his capacity as editor of the ‘Grist’ anthology) to say that the launch party for the 2012 edition – my first ever fiction publication – is in Huddersfield on the same day in November as ‘Brain of Britain’.
I doubt very much that it will be possible to attend both. If I attend the ‘Grist’ launch, as I almost certainly will, I will probably be reading an extract from my short story entitled ‘Slow Dance With A Skeleton’.
The short fiction anthology is called ‘Outside the Asylum’.
