Here are a bunch of little writing-related news items too small to justify their own post:
You can now read my story “Finding Joan” at Daily Science Fiction. Free!
You can win a copy of Wild Cards 1 — the reissue of the first volume in the Wild Cards series, with additional new stories by me, Carrie Vaughn, and Michael Cassutt — from Pat’s Fantasy Hotlist.
StarShipSofa is going to podcast my story “A Passion for Art” from Interzone 228. Yay! But Gardner Dozois in Locus didn’t like it. Ya win some, ya lose some.
Francophones! You can now buy Légendes, an anthology in French including my “L’histoire de l’Aigle Royal” (The Tale of the Golden Eagle) plus “Changement d’itinéraire” (Changed Itinerary) by Mary Robinette Kowal, “Le goût du miracle” (Taste of Miracles) by Kristine Kathryn Rusch, and more! I love that the shipping options on the order form include “I find myself in the Metropolis” (i.e. Paris), “I find myself overseas,” and “I find myself elsewhere in the world.”
(I’ve been feeling pretty worthless as a writer lately, since it’s been very difficult for me to produce any words at all since before we left for Australia. But I have to remind myself that not many people can say “why yes, one of my Hugo-nominated stories was just translated into French.” I’ll find my way back onto that horse one of these days, I swear.)
