Fewer hamsters, hurray!
Now I can get back to pumping out ye olde fiction. And editing schtuff for The Town Drunk before britzkrieg shows up on my doorstep with spork in hand . . .
I just learned that I received three Honorable
Mentions in the 19th Year's Best Fantasy and Horror (edited
by Ellen Datlow, Gavin J. Grant, and Kelly Link) for "The Bunny of Vengeance and Bear of Death" (in Fantasy Magazine #1), "The Tiger Fortune Princess" (in Paradox #7), and "Returning My Sister's Face" (in Realms of Fantasy Feb '05). Squeeing and happy dancing to commenceth.
- Payment from the wonderful Cricket Magazine folks for "The Tax Collector's Cow" (in June's Spider). Shiny.
- 3-day lightning fast "no GUD" from GUD. Alas.
