One last post, to close out the year.
I published an ABSURD amount this year, y’all. Six short stories, which is quite a respectable number for me these days . . . and thanks to the vagaries of publishing schedules, THREE novels in the same calendar year. That isn’t normal, yo. But yeah, 2021 saw the release of The Mask of Mirrors in January, The Night Parade of 100 Demons just two weeks later in February, and then The Liar’s Knot here at the end of the year. Ooof.
As for the short fiction:
- “As Tight as Any Knot” (Beneath Ceaseless Skies, and a Rook and Rose short story)
- “The Bottle Tree” (Departure Mirror, and a Wilders short story)
- “Speak to the Moon” (F&SF — my first sale there!!!)
- “Oak Apple Night” (Beneath Ceaseless Skies, and an Onyx Court short story; I swear, I’m not trying to hit every series I’ve ever written . . .)
- “The Old Woman and the Tea” (Daily Science Fiction)
- “Ghost and Fox” (Shapers of Worlds Volume II)
. . . plus five reprints in various places.
2022 will not look the same, because it can’t. But here’s hoping for a good year, regardless.
