My story “Goosegirl” from the Fantasy Magazine anthology is now up at their site! Go take a look, and then enjoy the other excellent fiction on the site. “The Yeti Behind You” and “Zombie Lenin”, both from the same anthology, are also up.
Heck, I can’t think of a better way to spend a Friday morning. I mean, come on. Yetis and Zombie Lenins!
Well, I have the counter-signed contract in hand, so I think I can probably announce this without fear that it’ll all turn out to be a dream.
My agent Shana Cohen has sold SPIRAL HUNT to Kate Nintzel at Eos as part of a three-book deal. SPIRAL HUNT is an urban fantasy set in the undercurrents of Boston, tracing the intersections of myth and power and everyday life from Southie to Fenway Park and back again. The two books to follow will continue in that vein.
To say I’m thrilled would be understating matters by several orders of magnitude. (Jumping up and down on Commonwealth Pier yelling and startling the seagulls was only a small part of my initial reaction.) I’m working on the second book now, readying myself for the edits to the first, and occasionally making little “woo!” noises.
The first book is tentatively scheduled to come out next spring. I’ll have more posts as I learn more details.
Astonishing Adventures #2 is up, including my story “Racing Against the Rose.” It’s a pulp revival magazine, with all the glee that entails, currently available as a PDF for download. It will also be
available in hardcopy from Amazon at some point in the future — I’ll link when it’s up.
My story “Goosegirl”, from the Fantasy Magazine anthology, has been accepted as an audio podcast in PodCastle. I’m not sure when it’ll be out, but I’ll post a link once it’s up. (Side note: If
the idea of audio podcasts of fantastic short stories appeals to you, try PodCastle’s sister sites, Escape Pod and Pseudopod.)
Also, there’s currently a poll for the favorite stories in the 2007 run of Fantasy Magazine. Go here and take a look. (If you’re not familiar with Fantasy Magazine, you’re missing out. Go read, then take the poll.)
Happy New Year to all!
