Contradiction in Terms
You say to-may-toe; I say toh-mah-tah. Deal with it.

I am so proud of my husband!

Not that this state of affairs is all that unusual, mind you, because (a) Dean is prone to accomplishing various extraordinary feats--such as winning seven Don Carlos Palanca Awards for Literature and owning two reasonably successful businesses without the benefit of a college degree; and (b) I'm really so in love with the man that I tend to think he's being superlative even when he's doing something incredibly mundane, like snoring.

So, I'm not the most objective person around. But I'm fairly certain he's done something quite applause-worthy this time, namely getting yet another short story published in yet another U.S. anthology. (The first being "L'Aquilone du Estrellas", in The 17th Year's Best Fantasy and Horror, last year. It was originally published online at Strange Horizons.) This one is called "Terminos", and will see publication in this year's Rabid Transit come May.

Read Dean's (overly humble) account at his blog.

Nikki Alfar is really not as sexy as El's illustration would have you believe... but she doesn't mind if you think of her that way.
