Sporty Spec has arrived

NaWriMo wordage for the day: 586 words

I forgot to mention that I received my contributor's copy for Sporty Spec: Games of the Fantastic edited by Karen A. Romanko over the weekend. It's a nicely put-together book, and I'm not just saying that because I'm in it or that my story "The Sport of Kings" is first in the lineup. Though it helps! I kid, I kid.

Featuring work by 42 authors, there's bound to be something for everyone. Though I'm not afraid to admit that me and poetry get along like snails and salt. Or am I thinking of slugs? Eh, let's move on. So far, I've enjoyed "Perpetual Check" by E.C. Myers, a planes-traveling chess story with some emotional depth, and "Hang Twenty" by Jude-Marie Green, a lighthearted tale about a surferboy, his wolf, and their time amongst the waves. I hope to get to read some more of the stories later on, but I'm very much liking what I've seen so far.

Hey! I haven't gotten my copy yet but I am looking forward to all those new sports.

I'm glad you liked my surfing werewolves!

I'm sure snails/slugs would taste good with salt!


I'm looking forward to seeing a copy.

Deborah: You let me know how those snails and slugs taste, heh. Take one for the team!

Just as long as it isn't a banana slug...I can't eat a banana slug - my daughter goes to UCSC!

Go team!
