Tu Sufrimiento…

I’m pleased to report that Black Static, considered the preeminent horror magazine out there, will be publishing my dark fantasy/horror story, “Tu Sufrimiento Shall Protect Us” in its next issue. Andy Cox has done a phenomenal job making this magazine look every bit as beautiful and professional as its sister magazine, Interzone.

This story marks my first foray away from pure science fiction, so I’m glad the story is appearing in such a great market.

In other news, Murky Depths has taken my flash piece “All Smiles” about invading clown-like aliens. This magazine is of special interest to me because of the graphic illustrations that accompany its various stories.  I can’t wait to see what they do with my story.

Finally, my SF advice-column story “Dear Annabehls” which originally appeared in Electric Velocipede #17/18, was broadcast last week on the Maine radio show “Beam Me Up.” The story is set in the same universe as “Snatch Me Another.” You can listen to a podcast of the program here. (My story begins at the 35:30 minute mark.)
