This has been quite a week. I spent the weekend at Orycon, hearing great readings and panels, and continuing to meet folks in the Pacific Northwest writing/editing community (and beyond).
I have two pieces of wonderful news this week.
On 11/13, I learned that my story “Vessels of Clay, Flesh, and Stars” has been accepted for In Situ, the next anthology from Dagan Books — the same great team behind Cthulhurotica. The theme of the anthology is alien archaeology. My story describes graduate students and their professor investigating a tomb from precolumbian Peru (from the Moche). It’s another spider story!
Today, on 11/17, I learned that my story “Pathological Curves” has been accepted for Poe Little Thing winter 2010 edition, from Naked Snake Press. This is my very first pro market sale! What a thrill! This is a very math geeky piece of flash fiction (~1000 words). It’s one of my Victorian setting stories, though not from the same universe as several of the others currently under review.
Yay for stories that find good homes! 🙂
