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.
