I’ve always loved Zhuangzi (庄子), and his words pop up from time to time in my fiction.

“How Do You Know If a Fish Is Happy?” is a sci-fi tale that combines the legend of the Dragon Gate (for carp) and Zhuangzi’s 子非鱼 parable (yes, really).

It’s going to be part of Dagan Books’s Fish anthology, scheduled for February, 2012. Take a look at the TOC. I’m in excellent company. (Also, both Cate Gardener and Amanda Davis have recently published with Daily Science Fiction in September. Be sure to check out their stories.)
