"Necessities" has shipped!  It's not up at the website yet, but Daily Science Fiction does most commentary on its Facebook page.  If you didn't sign up to DSF in time, you can read the story in the Crit Group here, or just wait a week for it to post to their site.

AND!  "As Fast As You Can" will be DSF's featured weekend story for May 13.  Mark your calendars and sign up for e-mail stories! 

(In all seriousness, I've found the convenience of the stories coming right to my Inbox has made DSF my most-read online magazine, whereas others tend to accumulate and get wiped out in long sessions of late-night boredom.)

My story The Cowboy, the Horse, and the Scorpion is now available at the Journal of Unlikely Entomology.  Both story and magazine basically do what they say on the tin.

"Boll Weevil" (a slightly expanded version of my entry into the Pseudopod fiction contest last year) has sold to the Parsec Triangulation anthology "Last Contact."  Publish date is July 23.  Mark your calendars!

Stephen Ramey has posted the teaser for "Boll Weevil" at his blog.  The anthology looks like a hoot so far; check out some of those other stories!

(Also I am secretly sad that my story got two "meh" votes out of four.  "Meh" is even worse than fiery hatred.)

Other "Boll Weevil" news!  It will also appear in audio on the Drabblecast sometime around the end of the year.  Double-sale!  Critical hit!  Roll damage!

The Drabblecast has proved surprisingly difficult for me, at least in terms of short stories rather than drabbles.

Part One of Tír na nÓg is up at Cast of Wonders, created by Barry Northern of Cast Macabre fame.  Parts two and three will follow at the appropriate intervals.

Check it out and admire the shiny!

Linkfest!

Okay, first, here are Part 2 and Part 3 of "Tír na nÓg" over at Cast of Wonders.  Graeme does a lovely, smooth reading and should be praised and worshiped in the appropriate forums.  Feel free to leave feedback on that story just about anywhere you like (though the CoW forums are a little anemic and could use some good discussion meat.  Flame, you glorious bastards!  Flame like you mean it!)

Second, the new issue of Bull Spec (#6) contains, at the very back where no one has to be embarrassed by it, my poem "Ruminations on a Dandelion Theme."  I just got my hard copy of the issue, and the production values are really stellar.  Highly recommended as a general product.

Thirdly, "Seasons in the Abyss," which contains two flash fiction pieces by yours truly, recently put up a Kindle edition at the much more reasonable price of three dollars.  I can recommend it at that price, definitely.  You'll get three bucks of entertainment out of it, although some of that may come from throwing it at the wall every now and then.  Probably at my stories.

And finally, Parsec Ink's Triangulation: Last Contact anthology is printed and available in both standard and Kindle editions.  I'm going to go ahead and guess, just based on the author list, that this will be a fun read.

Dustin Adams, under the banner of Frank Dutkiewicz' reviews, has given my story "As Fast As You Can" a Recommended rating over at David Steffen's Diabolical Plots.  Mine is about halfway down the page.  Frank's articles are a noble effort to provide reviews for such a high-output venue (the likeliest explanation as to why other reviewing sites haven't done more about it.)  At over a year of successful operation, I think we can at least say that DSF is a serious attempt at a 'zine, questions of income sources aside.  And they buy more of my stories than any other venue I've tried, so I pretty much love them by definition.  ;-)

Tangent Online has reviewed "Triangulation: Last Contact."  They hate my story, but they correctly identify most of the others as high-quality and enjoyable bits of literature.

Seriously, it's a good book.

Issue 2 of Penumbra E-Mag is out, with a story by Yrs Trly.  ("Cocklebur," which some in the forums have seen as "Nightseed.")

They also apparently offer subscriptions now...

Have you ever said to yourself, "Self, I love paying for things that I can get for free, but my pantry is already completely full of bottled water and that unkempt man who hands out the Jack Chick tracts currently runs when he sees me coming"? 

Well, have I got a deal for you!

"Splinters of Silver and Glass" is a collection of the best 100 stories from the first three years of Mirrorshards.  Buy 99 stories for a penny each, get the 100th free!

It also includes "The Lady of Tilmarine," which is the very first story I ever sold (and no longer available online), and "Old Growth," which got an Honorable Mention in Writers of the Future but never found a home.  (Now how much would you pay? /RonPopeil)

Yes, all this can be yours for... well, candy bars are all mostly $0.85 now, but 20 oz. sodas are all $1.25...

Pretend it's a Dollar Tree.  The Dollar Tree of Fiction!

"Terrible Lizard King," which first appeared at Pseudopod, is now available in print at Allegory E-zine.  If you don't have time to listen, then surely you also probably don't have time to click over and read it, actually, but hey!  It's there if you want it.

This marks my Very First Reprint Sale.  Huzzah!

My flash fiction fantasy/phantasmagoria, "Lightblind," is available in the Sparks anthology from Earthbound books.  It's only available at Amazon for now, but it's also only three bucks.  I enjoyed several of the stories in my advance copy, so don't buy it just for my story.  :-)

Also, if someone who isn't either paid by or a personal friend of the editors wants to write an actual review for Sparks, that'd be awesome.  I don't know what they were thinking.
