September Commenceth

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.
