Reprint Sale!

I’m thrilled that “Miss Darcy’s First Intergalactic Ballet Class” has already found another home – before it was even published in Galaxy’s Edge! *muppet flail*

It will be appearing in the exciting reprint anthology Funny Science Fiction, edited by Alex Shvartsman.

The TOC already has some great names and stories appearing on it, including (so far) Mike Resnick, Shaenon Garrity, Lavie Tidhar, Oliver Buckram, Desmond Warzel, Tina Connolly, Anatoly Belilovsky, Ken Liu, and Lisa Tang Liu. Warzel’s “Wikihistory” still stands out as one of the funniest science fiction stories I’ve read, so I’m very pleased Alex liked my own story enough to include it in this collection.

Also, Alex is still looking for a few more funny stories for the anthology, so contact him if you know of one you want to include. He wants recent stories, though, from the last 5-10 years, I believe.

In other news, Camp Nano starts in 35 minutes. I set a high bar for myself this time, so the pressure will be on to hit to the word count. I’m not sure why accountability and guilt works as a writing motivator for me, but it was extremely helpful for keeping me from slacking off last November. (Though I’m positive that it wouldn’t have worked if I didn’t already have an outline to follow.) So it can’t be all that bad.

  1. I just finished reading your budding-balleterinas-in-space short in Funny Science Fiction. Very amusing, even my fiancé (who tries never to read anything but contracts) enjoyed it when I read it out loud. Win-win! Thanks. Cheers,
    Cherie

  2. I’m so glad you both enjoyed it! This is still one of my favorite stories, especially when read aloud.
