Page proofs pwned

This morning I read over the proofs of my short story "The Sport of Kings" for Sporty Spec: Games of the Fantastic edited by Karen A. Romanko.

I generally like this step a lot, mostly because by the time it gets to me I've been away from the work for long enough to not remember every little detail. To me, it's like reading somebody else's work. Weird, I know. Anyways, I'm happy to announce that I still like the piece. It's also one that might surprise some people; yes, I write about other things than supernatural horrors and robots.

Oh, wait. There's robotic horses in this.

Ah, whatever. Robots never get old (and if they do, it's time for an upgrade, I say).

I believe the book is going to the printer today. Neat-o.

Ditto that--it's fun to see again (and in a printer-ready pdf format) a story you haven't looked at in a while. I'm definitely looking forward to this one. You and I get to bookend the antho, so that's fun too.

Ah, yes! Having it formatted like a Real Thing is much more fun to read than straight off a Word file. So, I open and you close? Excellent.
