Before we start, a belated happy new year to anyone who stumbles over this post. And is it a new decade? Well, what the hell, a happy new decade to you as well.
First sale of 2010 goes to editor Seth Crossman at OG's Speculative Fiction, and my story Today the War Ended, Tonight the Sky Burned. What can I say? I was going through a phase of long titles. Today the War Ended is the closest I've come, (and probably the closest I ever will come), to writing a seasonal story. It's about war, of course, and what it does to lives, about sacrifice, and more than anything about love and its limitations. It's a small, sad story that I'm immensely fond of, and I'm glad to see it end up with Seth, who quietly goes about producing one of the most consistent small press magazines around.
This, by the way, will be my third appearance in OG's Speculative Fiction, after The Other Ten Thousand in issue #9 and The Ascension of DeepRED in issue #15. Here's hoping it won't be the last.
