I still have to revise the book, of course — or I should say, finish revising; I’ve been working on that as I go along — but I have enough brain and breathing room now to catch up on a few things that slipped through the cracks while I was busy.

First up! I sold a story! To Mike Allen! For Clockwork Phoenix 4! (Maintaining my streak: Tanith Lee and I are the only ones with a story in every CP anthology to date.) You may remember this as a Kickstarter project a while ago; well, the project was a success, and now the anthology is underway. The finished TOC consists of:

  • Yves Meynard, “Our Lady of the Thylacines”
  • Ian McHugh, “The Canal Barge Magician’s Number Nine
  • Nicole Kornher-Stace, “On the Leitmotif of the Trickster Constellation in Northern Hemispheric Star Charts, Post-Apocalypse”
  • Richard Parks, “Beach Bum and the Drowned Girl”
  • Gemma Files, “Trap-Weed”
  • Yukimi Ogawa, “Icicle”
  • A.C. Wise, “Lesser Creek: A Love Story, A Ghost Story”
  • Marie Brennan, “What Still Abides”
  • Alisa Alering, “The Wanderer King”
  • Tanith Lee, “A Little of the Night”
  • Cat Rambo, “I Come from the Dark Universe”
  • Shira Lipkin, “Happy Hour at the Tooth and Claw”
  • Corinne Duyvis, “Lilo Is”
  • Kenneth Schneyer, “Selected Program Notes from the Retrospective Exhibition of Theresa Rosenberg Latimer”
  • Camille Alexa, “Three Times”
  • Benjanun Sriduangkaew, “The Bees Her Heart, the Hive Her Belly”
  • Patricia Russo, “The Old Woman with No Teeth”
  • Barbara Krasnoff, “The History of Soul 2065″

Mike Allen has more to say about it here. My story, “What Still Abides”, is the one I was complaining about before, saying that it was trying to kill me; well, it failed, and then it sold, so at least I got something for my suffering. 🙂

    The problem with Aegon being a complete fraud is, it makes a variety of other characters look like idiots. Which is why I actually favor him being a real Targaryen — if maybe not Aegon himself — and then going down like a punk.

    But really, I don’t see any good way out of that idea. It’s dumb no matter which way you slice it.
