Hello, Three Readers! Has it really been two months since I last wrote?
A few bits of my flesh and soul for you then, since you must be starving:
– fantasybookcritic has posted my story “Hooves and the Hovel of Abdel Jameela” as a free online sample of the awesome anthology Clockwork Phoenix 2. Please go read it and be sure to tell them in the comments how much you loved my story Then you’ll want to do yourself the favor of buying a copy of the anthology!
– I’ve sold my short-short story “Doctor Diablo Goes Through The Motions,” about a smart-alecky Latino supervillain, to Strange Horizons. They’re a great magazine publishing a genuinely diverse range of some of the best genre fiction out there. I’m geeked to join their authors’ ranks. The story’s (thus far) slated to appear in February.
– I’ve recently had my poems “How To Survive In Detroit #32″ and “Recite!” accepted for publication at the stalwart journal Callaloo, which I’ve long considered one of the best and most important literary journals in English. Sharing a ‘past contributors’ list with Octavia Butler, Samuel Delany, and Alice Walker? Yes, please! The poems should appear some time next year.
