In recent news, I sold two reprints this month. The first was to Escape Pod, who is taking my story, “Flowing Shapes.” The story originally appeared in the first issue of Basement Stories and I’m thrilled that it’s going to be heard by Escape Pod’s audience.
The second sale was to their sister podcast, Pseudopod. They will be podcasting my story, “Pumpkinhead”, which appeared in Shadows of the Emerald City.
I’ve narrated podcasts for all three of the Escape Artists sites – Podcastle, Escape Pod, and Pseudopod – now, so it’s also really cool to have stories of mine appear in all three.
I’ll post links when they go live.
I promise that this blog is not going to be me promoting my own stuff, but there were a few things I wanted to mention from the past month or so.
First of all, I mentioned this on Twitter, but my story, “Card Sharp”, received an Honorable Mention in the Year’s Best Science Fiction (28th edition) edited by Gardner Dozois. This makes “Card Sharp”, without a doubt, my most popular story to date.
In addition, The Way of the Wizard, the anthology that “Card Sharp” originally appeared in, was just nominated for a World Fantasy Award (along with editor John Joseph Adams). I was so happy to be a part of that anthology and I’m glad that John is being recognized for putting it together.
In other news, my review of Jim Butcher’s Ghost Story, the 13th and latest book in the popular Dresden Files, recently went up at Tor.com.
And my narration of “Songs for Dead Hearts” by Mandana Faridani, just went up at Pseudopod, the first time I’ve done a podcast for them.
I think that’s everything for now. Next up I have some writing from other people that I want to mention…
