New Story Sale!

Quite pleased to announce that I have sold my Cordwainer Smith/H.P. Lovecraft mash-up story "You Will Never Be the Same" to the anthology Whispers from the Abyss, due out this summer by new publisher .01 Publishing. This is my first time working in any other author's universe, so of course I had to go the hard route and draw elements from TWO other writers, not just Lovecraft. But I think it turned out pretty well. More details on this blog as the release date approaches!

Publication Announcement, SFWA Announcement, etc.

I am very pleased to announce that my short story "Super-Parents Last All Childhood Long" will be published in the email and online magazine Daily Science Fiction. This is the last thing I wrote in 2012 (a.k.a. "the year I started writing again, for real this time, I mean it") and I am thrilled that it has found a home. Not sure yet when it will appear, but sign up for the free mailing list to read it a week early, or check back here when it's published on the site.

Also, as of just a few days ago, I am a member of Science Fiction Writers of America. Joining SFWA is one of those things I really should have done when I got my first pro sale, but then I didn't and then I forgot about it and stopped writing. I'm still only an associate member, but I'm 2/3 of the way to a full membership, so you can start campaigning for the Nebula Awards at me any day now (but seriously, don't).

Lastly, have you heard about Balticon? I'll be there on May 24th and 25th, might possibly be on panels, and will definitely be doing a reading on Friday night with some other panelists. More details when I have them. Hope to see one of my three readers there!
