“Firewall” and “Sun Magic, Earth Magic” received Honorable Mentions from Gardner Dozois in his annual Year’s Best SF.
Circlet Press’s ebook anthology Up for Grabs, including my humorous SF erotica short-short story “Fair Play,” is now available. Warning: explicit sexual content. (My story is sexual, but not as explicit as some of the others.)
I sold story “Family Matters” to Esther Friesner for her as-yet-untitled anthology about vampires in suburbia. This story is the third in a series that begins with “Midnight at the Center Court” in Witch Way to the Mall, Esther’s anthology about witches in suburbia, which just hit the shelves. I also gave an interview to local journalist T. K. Gilb which should appear as one or more articles on examiner.com at some point in the future.
I have been selected to write one of three new stories in a hardcover reissue of Wild Cards Volume One!
I’m now a member of the Wild Cards consortium! Also, I sold audio rights for “Charlie the Purple Giraffe Was Acting Strangely” to The Drabblecast, who did such an excellent performance of “Babel Probe”. I’ve also received my author copy of Nebula Awards Showcase 2009, which has a gorgeous cover and includes my Nebula nominee “Titanium Mike Saves the Day.” And I’ve received my preliminary program schedule for Wiscon.
I’ve been invited to participate in a Science Fiction Panel on Thursday, Apr 16 from 6 to 8 at the Mt. Hood Community College Library, part of National Library Week. Free and open to the public.
