Just had my very first sale to John Joseph Adams. My story, “Simulacrum,” will appear in Lightspeed sometime next year. Lightspeed recently got a lot of great buzz due to Adam-Troy Castro’s incredible story, “Arvies”, and I’m really honored to have a chance to be published in the same market.
This has turned out to be a pretty incredible year for me. The greatest miracle, of course, is the birth of little Esther. And to think that in the same year, I managed to break into F&SF and Asimov’s, and got to meet Gordon Van Gelder, Ted Chiang and Paolo Bacigalupi.
If I’m dreaming, please don’t let me wake up.
