Which is to say, three new stories, “Piano Theif” and “Because My Therapist Asked Me to Tell a Story Using Hamsters,” each over at the July Hobart, and “Close Encounters,” up now at 365 Tomorrows. Also, “Endless Buffets” is in the current Western Humanities Review. And, hitting the shelves at Readercon in a week here, in New Genre 6, “Lonegan’s Luck,” a zombie western — or, a western with zombies. Too, though it’s still a ways away, I’ve got a horror story, “Till the Morning Comes,” to be included in Rare and Different Fictions of the Grateful Dead, and then a science fiction piece, “Heaven,” forthcoming in, of all places, English Language Notes, their “Literature and Pseudoscience” issue. I dig both those stories. In addition, I’m guessing that “Little Lambs” is either current or a day or two away from being current in Iron Horse — “Little Lambs” being one of my favorite stories that I’ve written. Another of my favorites, the title piece from my October 2010 Prime collection The Ones That Almost Got Away (well, cut the ‘almost’ and it’s the title story), it’s in Phantom, from Prime Books (though that site’s being rebuilt right now). Not sure about how available that is yet, though; I have it already, but, I don’t know, maybe I got special treatment there or something. Notice at Prime, though, that Sean Wallace acquired an Ellen Datlow collection. Very excited about this. Too, that “Raphael” story of mine, it’s in Prime’s Horror: the Best of the Year.
