And Now We Do the Dance of Joy

The wonderful people over at Our Own Voice have decided to publish my short story, Heritage, previously seen in this here blog. Gracious editor Reme just emailed me out of the blue--which is probably the absolute best way I have ever gotten any work of mine published, because I didn't have to write anything new, and I didn't have to go through the anxiety of wondering whether my submission would pass muster.

I must have done something good recently, though for the life of me I can't think what.

In other good news on the lit'ry front, spec fic god Jeff Ford has plugged Dean's Philippine Speculative Fiction anthology over at his blog. Since I did have to write something new and go through anxiety to get in the book (despite sleeping with the editor, can you imagine?), I'm delighted.

You can check the plug out here--of course, Jeff failed to say anything like "Nikki Alfar is brilliant and beautiful", but I live in hope.

Maybe if I find another good deed to do?

This site is prettiest if you set your monitor resolution to 1024 by 768... but I won't hold it against you if you don't. Honest.

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.
