Let’s Dance

I’m pleased to announce that Interzone has purchased my story “Dance of the Kawkawroons.”  This is my fifth sale to the acclaimed British SF publication.  I’m particularlypleased that this SF story — my first one with a Twilight Zone-type ending — will be getting lots of eyeballs looking at it.

A few days ago I received my distributor’s copies of Unplugged: The Web’s Best SF and Fantasy: 2008 Download, edited by Rich Horton (Wyrm Publications), which contains my Abyss & Apex story “Snatch Me Another. ”  The layout and look of the book is terrific.  Hmm, is it tacky to give copies to relatives for Christmas?
