Getting Into The Spirit Of Things


This is turning out to be quite a week. I've just sold another SF story, namely The Stars Their Hesitation, which stars Spirit, as in the plucky, little Martian rover that could, and other assorted space probes, to Bards and Sages Quarterly.

 I've always felt a bit sad about the probes hurtling through space all alone, and the rovers switched off and left on their lonesome on the windswept plains of the Red Planet after doing such a sterling job for us, and, well, this story is partly my way of thanking them all for their efforts and making things right, and partly about other things...

It'll be out in October.

Thank you. It's just a little story, but I'm glad it's found such a nice home.

Congratulations. It's been a good couple of weeks.

Thank you, Steve. It's nice when things move along. I wish it were like this all the time, but alas, it'll probably be months until the next round of activity.
