My Story “Fields of Joy” has sold to Outposts of Beyond. It should be appearing in the January 2019 issue… I’ll remind everyone then!
If anyone’s curious about my N3F prizewinning story “Qalnoth’s Favor”, it’s available in the latest edition of the N3F magazine, Eldritch Science.
If you grew up in the eighties, or with the music from the eighties, you might get a real kick out of my story “Stilettos in the Snow” which was published at Anotherealm last week.
Recently learned that my story “Pacific Wind” will be appearing in Best Indie Speculative Fiction, Volume One. Always nice to be part of a “Best Of” collection, especially as I’ve always loved this particular story. Here’s a link to the antho’s website.
About a week ago, I realized that I was mentioned in an interview with Mark Bould on Big Echo (a critical SF site). A lot of the interview was focused on politics, but it was nice to be named as one of the exponents of the current wave of Latin American SF – nice that someone noticed, LOL.
The March 2018 edition of The Fifth Dimension, which includes my story “Spinning Candle” has been published. I’ll leave a link in the first comment – also cool is that this one has a story by friend and excellent author Robert N Stephenson!
Here’s the list of finalists for the 2018 Jim Baen Memorial Short Story Award – some great names, and I’m truly excited to be among them:
Stewart C Baker
C Stuart Hardwick
Julie N. Novakova
Martin L. Shoemaker
Though I’m still very excited about yesterday’s news, life goes on. Fortunately, there’s more good stuff today: the Autumn’s Harvest anthology has been released. This one includes my story entitled “Teeth”. Nice cover, too!
I’ve known for a few days that I’m one of the ten finalists for the 2018 Jim Baen Memorial Award, but had been asked to keep quiet about it until today.
But now it can be told and I’m delighted to announce that… well, what I said above! The three winners will be posted at some point in March.
As you can imagine, I’m beyond excited, having grown up reading Baen science fiction as a kid.
Anyhow, the best of luck to the other nine finalists (at least one of whom is a friend, maybe more; I haven’t seen the complete list yet).
