Remember how I always wanted to write a specfic story about the tax code? That story, “You’ll Always Have the Burden With You,” has been sold to Dagan Books for the IN SITU anthology.
Now this isn’t a specfic story involving the tax code PLUS Lisp programming, which I have yet to write. But I’m halfway to completing my goal now.
I’ve been thinking for years about writing a specfic story involving the tax code. I’ve also been thinking for years about writing a story involving pneumatic tube transport.
And now I’ve done both. (No, the PTT story is not really about “an Internet made of tubes” — though if you agree that the railroad was the Victorian Internet, then the analogy may apply to my story as well.)
Now we’ll see if I can get them published.
