Quick fiction

There are a lot of great small online presses out there, doing interesting things in the realm of SF and fantasy. Ideomancer, Strange Horizons, and many more. One, Crossed Genres, is having an Earth Day sale on PDF subscriptions. Today only, $7.50 for a year (12 months).

Peter Beagle has begun a project to write a song, story, or poem every day for a year, to celebrate his 70th birthday and 50th anniversary of publishing his first novel. It’s $25 to get in on the fun, and have them delivered straight to you. (And it’s a worthwhile cause, too.)

Probably everyone who is interested has already heard this, but just in case: members of the 2009 Worldcon will receive a very nice electronic packet containing most of the materials for the Hugo Award nominees. I got my packet yesterday – wow! Thanks to John Scalzi, the authors and publishers, and everyone else who contributed to putting this together.

In other fictional news, I submitted my first-ever story to a real paying market. Wish me luck!

    I never have said, Phi, how impressed I am that you submitted Unicorn. It’s a good story and I do wish you all the luck in the world.

    Thanks, Siri! I started writing a longer reply, but it morphed into its own post… a bit of lunchtime writing that should appear here in a bit.
