Story Sale!

My story "Problems of the Solid State" has sold to magazine Farrago's Wainscot! Very exciting!

The magazine leans towards experimental/interstitial speculative fiction and has published some great work. Hal Duncan, Forrest Aguirre, Ekaterina Sedia, Jay Lake, Eugie Foster and many others have appeared in their pages -- how awesome is that! I'm thrilled they've accepted my story!

Due to the backlog of submissions it probably won't be published until January 2009, but there's still a tiny chance it may make the October 2008 issue. I'll post updates when I know more.

Happy 4th!!

I cant wait to read it... well I can and will wait but I'm just saying that I'm eager to read it. Maybe eager inst the right word. More like interested. Yes I am interested in reading your story.

This is just one example of how I am focusing on removing hyperbole from common language. If you share my opinion that all hyperbole is evil then please send donations to via paypal. Thank you!

Thanks buddy! Appreciate the support and eagerness....err, I mean, interest.

As a writer, hyperbole is a fun tool. If you share my opinion that hyperbole should be encouraged by everyone at every opportunity, please send donations to me via Paypal immediately. Thank you much! :-)
