Lately I have signed a couple contracts for stories I’ve sold, which makes me seem like such a grown up that I feel compelled to tell you about it. First is “Slow,” set to appear in the April issue of Apex Magazine. You can see the cover art here, if you like. Considering that cover, my story, and Damien Angelica Walters’s Requiem, for Solo Cello, I’m beginning to think Apex has a thing for anthropomorphic art objects. A good thing! Obviously.
Second is “Empty Cars,” in the Blurring the Line horror anthology from Cohesion Press, edited by Marty Young. The full table of contents will be published in the not-too-distant future and the book itself will come out in the “third quarter” of the year. I think that means September. I could be wrong.
Third! and a new addition to the forthcoming roster! is “Sunfish,” a short story set in the north woods that the very cool people at Midwestern Gothic have accepted for their Summer issue. I promise no actual fish were harmed in the writing of the story. Or virtual or fictional fish. Okay, there are no fish in the story whatsoever.
One more bit of news: K. Tempest Bradford at io9.com was kind enough to read and review my story “Plural”; her column is here.
