I’m happy to announce that my short story “Truth is Like the Sun” will appear in a future issue of Lightspeed Magazine. The story is told in a modern epistolary (letter) format and concerns a trans Persian-Thai rock star who performs a musical set from orbit and literally breaks the internet. No news yet on when the story will be released.
I’m happy to announce some good news for the new year. Mercurio D. Rivera and I co-authored a story called “The Walk to Distant Suns” which has been sold to Analog Science Fiction & Fact. The premise: Shandi Pallai is a wormhole engineer who works aboard a space station, helping people migrate off the dying Earth to a new, better planet. She’s been saving up to migrate to the new world with her family and her sick, dying mother. But when the corporation raises the price of transit, Shandi decides to take things into her own hands.
The story will be out sometime later this year.
I’m happy to announce a new short story sale: “The Marsh of Camarina” will appear in the Canadian anthology SHADES WITHIN US: Tales of Migration and Fractured Borders, edited by Susan Forest and Lucas K. Law. Revenue from this anthology will go directly to support the mental health and community food growing programs provided by Mood Disorders Association and Alex Community Food Centre. In addition, the publisher, Laksa Media will donate CAN$1,000 upon the publication of the anthology.
“The Marsh of Camarina” is about artificial intelligence, job replacement, universal basic income (UBI), and seeking purpose in a world where traditional modes of work have become obsolete.
I’m happy to be a part of this.
I’m happy to announce that I’ve just sold a new story. “Will You Meet Me There, Out Beyond the Bend?” will appear in a future issue of Nightmare magazine. This will be my second story in Nightmare.
It’s about ghosts, car accidents, family, and human nesting behaviors.
I’ll be attending the World Fantasy Convention in Columbus, Ohio from October 27-30. I’ll be doing a reading at Friday at 3pm in Union D, in which I plan to read a new, unpublished story. I’ve been working hard on several work projects (most non-writer related) and so haven’t had much free time, so I’m really looking forward to catching up with folks over a beer there!
In other news, I sold a new story. But the editor has asked me to remain silent until s/he announces. However, I have to say I’m pretty freakin’ psyched with this new sale!
Anyway, see (some of you) soon in Ohio.
