Bring on the headaches and twitches!
Mega congrats to my fellow DC2Ker, canadiansuzanne, for breaking into Cicada! She sold them her story, "Storm Child." I'm so happy for her!
oldcharliebrown posted the cover of the Japanese Dreams anthology on his blog. And I see it's already available for pre-order from Amazon.com. Shiny!
"The first volume in a series of anthologies offering short stories drawn from the storehouse of world mythology, Japanese Dreams takes the reader to the islands of fire and smoke—where shape-shifters, demons, and lovers all populate a landscape blossoming with story. Contributions by such authors as Richard Parks, Catherynne Valente, Jeannette Westwood, Eugie Foster, Ekaterina Sedia, Erzebet YellowBoy, Yoon Ha Lee, Jenn Reese, Sarah Prineas, Jim C. Hines, and Steve Berman all offer us a glimpse of a silken sleeve or the red fur of the fox as she slips between the rushes, daring us to follow."
- Negative 200 (or so) words on "Sinner, Baker, Fabulist, Priest; Red Mask, Black Mask, Gentleman, Beast" in several editing passes. And it's a first draft! Uploaded it to Critters.org. It should go up next week.
