state of the desk update

February 24, 2021

I’ve sold five short stories since last fall. This is a good run that makes me happy. Like, no matter what else happens I still have a foot in the game, and that’s just one of the reasons why I’ll always love short stories. Three of them are for anthology/magazine assignments — including one for Wild Cards. Two were ones I just wrote and submitted.

One of them is already published, in issue #39 of Uncanny Magazine, which is available to Kickstarter backers right now and will be available to everyone else next week, I believe. This may be the fastest turnaround from writing the story to seeing it in print that I’ve ever had — I think I wrote it in November/December. For just a bit of trivia there.

The story is called “The Book of the Kraken” and it’s about a girl and her squid.

OF COURSE I’ll let you know when all the other stories go live.

Now, back to work.
