2011: writing in review
January 4, 2012
It is the time of year when science fiction and fantasy authors all over the web are posting about Their Stuff because award nomination season has begun. I shall do likewise.
I sold a lot of short stories over the last year or two, but a good chunk of those sales were reprints. In fact, I think sold more reprint rights in the last two years than I did in the previous eight years of my published career put together. How weird is that? But here’s all the new stuff that came out in 2011:
“Defining Shadows,” from Those Who Fight Monsters.
“Threads,” from The Thackery T. Lambshead Cabinet of Curiosities.
“You’re on the Air,” an original short from Kitty’s Greatest Hits.
“It’s Still the Same Old Story,” from Down These Strange Streets.
“Long Time Waiting,” the original story from Kitty’s Greatest Hits. (I’m excited about this, because it’s my first-ever published novella, and I’m awfully proud of it!)
Steel, young adult from HarperTeen
Kitty’s Big Trouble, from Tor Books
All in all, it was a pretty good year.
