More good news


Last night I came home from work to find an email from one of the editors I work with. She was writing to tell me a short story, "A Day At The Unicorn Races," was accepted for the anthology FANTASY GONE WRONG. It's a silly story, for a light-hearted collection about what happens when fantasy works on ways we don't necessarily anticipate. I don't know when this one will be out, but I'll be sure to announce it when I do know.

The really cool part is that this is the third story I've sold to this particular anthology packager.

The first one, "Godspeed," is coming out the end of this month in a collection called TIME AFTER TIME. It's up on Amazon, and I'm very pleased with it.

The story is about John Glenn, and is my very own little slice of total hero worship. I think Glenn is one of the true heroes in my lifetime, one of the good guys, and doing this story was a tribute to a man who truly has "The Right Stuff." Being old enough to remember Sputnik, and the original Mercury 7 astronauts, this was just a fun story to write.

I hope copies will be available in time for the Orycon science fiction convention the first weekend in November. I will be there, doing some panels and a book-signing, and it would be wonderful to have new books to sign!
