My story “Honor Among Thieves” has sold to Fantasy Short Stories (the new fantasy arm of Alien Dimensions with whom I’ve had a number of stories published). Love working with them, and looking forward to seeing what they put together for the initial issue.
The July 2018 edition of Bards and Sages Quarterly is out. This one contains a reprint my story “Schism”, so if you haven’t read that one, this is a good chance to get it (I always liked that particular tale quite a bit).
My story “Tehuelche” has sold to the Patchwork Raven’s anthology which will have one story for each country in the world. “Tehuelche” will be the entry for Argentina.
Alien Dimensions will be publishing my story “Blink” in their next issue… and they’re still looking for more stories. Link here.
Happy writing news of the day is that my story “Field of Honor” has sold to the Third Flatiron anthology Terra, Tara, Terror. I love working with Third Flatiron–they are both professional and which makes me very happy that this story made the cut.
My story “A Sip of Pombé” placed second and received a Judges’ Commendation in the 2018 James White Award which, as far as I can tell after obsessively checking the history, has only been awarded twice before.
You can read the formal announcement here, but to save everyone some time, I’ve copied judge Una McCormack’s thoughts about my story below:
“Our world at the moment seems to have turned inwards, away from the stars and the promise of the stars, becoming lost in divisions and threat. ‘A Sip of Pombé’, which concerns an illicit Ugandan mission to Mars, shows us how humanity can be audacious and strive towards a better future. It reminds us that if we are to have such a future, it must be found together. A fine story within an excellent set of short stories.”
My story “We Sail by Night” has sold to the Blood in the Rain antho. That makes me happy. Will let everyone know when this one comes out!
I almost never write children’s stories, so when I do, I love to share with everyone – the antho Eeny Meeny Miney Mo: Tales for Tired Tykes is available for purchase. Have a look!
Had some wonderful news this morning. I am a finalist for the James White Award. It’s always a massive thing when you’re named a finalist in a competition run by the BSFA and Interzone, so I’m kind of doing a happy dance on continuous loop. Link to the press release is here.
I posted last week that my story “Gina” had been published on Swords & Sorcery… well, the good news today is that it was also favorably reviewed on Black Gate. You can read the review here.
