Received two rejections over the past couple of days – one from Austin indie mag Space Squid, and the other my expected Writer’s of the Future rejection. It’s all good. The Space Squid story has already been redirected, with a few tweaks, to Every Day Fiction, along with a requested rewrite of my rock and roll IN SPACE! story. I am feeling productive!
It helps that I had to stay home from work today. We’ve got some home repairs going on.
My WoTF story I will take another look at and likely send spinning in the direction of Space Westerns.com. It seems right up their alley, being a space western and all. Or maybe I should expand it into a novel? Hmm.
Oh, if you are in the Austin, TX area in the next few months, I recommend stopping by the Harry Ransom Center on UT’s campus to check out the Edgar Allan Poe exhibit. It’s quite spiffy. They’ve also got a great exhibit dedicated to the International Year of Astronomy and one of the Gutenberg Bibles.
Just don’t go on a game day. That whole area becomes a mess, and you’ll see more burnt orange shirts than any human being should ever have to suffer.
