Celebrating Beneath Ceaseless Skies

Almost a decade ago I was part of a terrific workshop run by Walter John Williams and Connie Willis in the Taos Ski Valley. It was a talented group, and the two week session was a happy blur of lots of writing, lots of critiquing, and lots and lots of shop talk, plus assorted movies and a lot of wine.

And he rejected it, because he didn’t feel it had the right flavor for his magazine.

Catch-up and Recent News as of the End of June, 2014

I’m going to be setting up a Patreon campaign, because I’ve got a big backlog of stories and figure releasing them on my own while on the road will probably work as well as worrying about keeping them submitted. If you might be interested in subscribing to get two short stories each month, please sign up for that mailing list, and drop me a comment here to let me know what sort of things you might like to accompany that. What sort of cost would be appropriate for a subscription that lets you supply a prompt or get a Tuckerization, for example?

A Recent Link

My story, Love Resurrected, is up at Beneath Ceaseless Skies. I’m particularly happy about that publication because I’ve known its publisher and editor, Scott Andrews, since the magazine was just a crazy idea floating around in Scott’s head. He’s done an amazing and beautiful job with it, and I’ve watched its progress with interest because it’s publishing some of the best stuff around (in my opinion). The story’s based in the world of many of my other pieces, but it’s across the sea from the port of Tabat, where most of them take place. If you’d like some hint of the subject matter, the original title was “The Zombie General”. Continue reading
