Kate and I just sent a new issue of our fanzine Bento off to
the printer. We'll have copies at the Worldcon, and mailed copies will
be sent out shortly after we return. Promise!
I just got another rejection on my story "Interview with the
Photographer." It's a 6100-word far-future SF tale that involves the
construction of a Dyson sphere and the destruction of several planets.
It's now bounced from Cosmic Tales from the Far Future,
Analog, Interzone , Asimov's, F&SF,
F&SF again after a rewrite, SciFi.com, Strange
Horizons, Oceans of the Mind, and Aeon, and I'm at a
loss where to send it next. I really like this one, it's gotten very
encouraging rejections, and think it deserves publication. But where?
I just sent off another of my irregular "David's Writing News" emails.
If you don't get one and would like one (or, for that matter, if you
got one and don't want any more), drop me a note.
I hate my hair. I'm growing out the sides, and they are now long
enough to fly out like wings but not yet long enough that I can pull
them into the ponytail. This situation is going to get worse for another
couple of months before it gets better, I think.
