I just realized that I posted about my latest story publication everywhere online except … my own actual web site. <facepalm>
“Hope Is the Thing With Feathers” — my short story about a nonspeaking autistic person, genetically engineered corvids, and the importance of self-determination — appears in Asimov’s Science Fiction Magazine, July/August 2023 issue. Individual print copies are in bookstores (most Barnes & Nobles, plus indies that carry SFF) and newsstands until around the second week of August. Single-copy digital versions are available on Magzter.
Given the lineup of well-known authors in this issue, I’m surprised (but pleased) that my name made the cover. This is my first fiction sale to Asimov’s, though I had two poems in the magazine back in the Dozois era.
I also wrote an essay about the differences between writing short- and long-form fiction, and the giant life-gap in my publishing career, to my Nine Lives newsletter.
That’s all for the moment; more writing in the pipeline for later in the month.
