I received an acceptance on a short story, but I won’t know until next June which publication it will be appearing in! Watch this space. “The Tale of the Golden Eagle” will also be translated into French, in the anthology Légendes.
I sold short story “Pupa” to Analog! I also sold audio rights to “Wind from a Dying Star,” my first professional sale, to Escape Pod.
I sold short story “horrorhouse” to DayBreak Magazine, a new online magazine dedicated to near-future, optimistic SF. It will appear on October 31. I also received payment for my Wild Cards story, though there may be one more round of editorial comments.
I got my program schedule for Foolscap. I’ll be auctioneering and appearing on a bunch of programming.
My Google slaves have discovered a surprisingly thorough bio of me in Russian (Google translation). This led me to the discovery that the Dozois Year’s Best SF 24, including my story “I Hold My Father’s Paws,” was translated into Russian in 2008.
I received payment from Analog for my story “Teaching the Pig to Sing.” The story will probably appear in Spring or Summer of 2010. Also, a Hungarian Blogger said some nice things about “Titanium Mike.” Google Translate renders the last two sentences of this review as “Literary feat: just write a few, and only the best can really cause pleasure released. The story’s end as if to seize the smile in our faces, and this is no small achievement.” Indeed.
I’m heading for Anticipation, the 67th World Science Fiction Convention in Montreal, tomorrow. My schedule is here. Also, in the July Locus, Gardner Dozois said my story “Aggro Radius” was one of the best stories in Gamer Fantastic.
Space Magic‘s Signed Limited Edition is now available from Wheatland Press.
I will be one of the pros at this year’s Worldcon Writers Workshops. See the link for information about how to sign up. Deadline is July 25, which is soon! Also, Gamer Fantastic, including my story “Aggro Radius,” is now available. I picked up a copy at Powell’s.
Space Magic, my first collection of short stories, is a finalist for the Endeavour Award!
