So, I woke up to good news this morning (and not that it was the greenest day of the year):
469(!)-day SALE of my short story "So Go the Seasons" to an upcoming issue of Black Gate!
Whew. I think I can finally exhale. And yes, I'm a very patient man, and I think, in this business, one really needs to be in order to stay sane. A long wait, but completely worth it. Black Gate is a great magazine, and I love all the articles about SF mags from the past by Rich Horton. The fiction is always great, accompanied by illustrations that reflect back to a more golden age of storytelling. To sum up, I am relieved, excited, and ready to continue waiting.
