In a sale that delighted and surprised the heck out of me, my story “Office Demons” will appear in the next issue of Stupefying Stories, which will be released November 3. This story is a bit of a departure for me in that it’s actually humor, nobody is dead or dying, and it probably won’t make anyone cry.
Many thanks to the issue’s editor, M. David Blake, for loving Claudia, Turner, and Fred as much as I do.
Daily Science Fiction has posted my story “My Mother’s Body” on their website for non-subscribers. Enjoy!
- I have a new post up at Inkpunks on my recent experience dragging my sad ass out of the creative doldrums.
- My story “My Mother’s Body” went out to Daily Science Fiction subscribers yesterday and apparently ruined everyone’s morning, though from what I understand, it was in a good way. It should be available on their website for non-subscribers next week.
- Brian White posted an update today about Kickstarter Fatigue and his future plans for Fireside.
- After quite a bit of soul-searching (related to that Inkpunks post) I have returned to Lightspeed as of the January 2013 issue. My tenses there sound like I’ve traveled through time but really that’s just the issue we’re working on right now. I missed you, Slush Pile! Let us be forever friends.
- I can’t believe WFC is almost here! Or that I’m almost there. I have a passport and everything. Like a grownup.
Right now I’m just glad it’s Friday. This week felt long. Have a great weekend! :)
Brian White of Fireside Magazine has just released the stories from Issue #1 for free online. My story “Temperance” went up this morning.
Issue #3 is currently in the process of raising funding via Kickstarter, and needs your help! If you enjoyed issues 1 and 2, or haven’t had a chance to check out Fireside yet, you can pre-order the next issue or go for one of the limited rewards. The issue will include stories from Daniel Abraham, Elizabeth Bear, Mary Robinette Kowal, and Lucas J.W. Johnson; the comic is written by Rachel Deering and drawn by Christine Larsen; the artist for the issue is Lisa Grabenstetter.
I pre-ordered the hard copy because frankly 1 and 2 were gorgeous.
