Tag Team Publishing

About two and a half years ago I sold a poem, "Universal Language," to Aboriginal Science Fiction. Longtime readers may recall it's been sitting in the forthcoming section of my publications page for quite sometime. Anyway, an announcement came the other day that, due to personal conflicts, Aboriginal SF will be folding up shop. Ah, another magazine I've killed - let me just add this to my list of magazines I've slain. On the bright side, Aboriginal got bought by DNA Publishing a year or so ago, and all of Aboriginal's purchased work will see print. Most of it will be printed in Absolute Magnitude, but some of it might make it to Fantastic, depending on content. As soon as I know which one my poem's going to, I'll let you know.

I'd also like to extend a personal thanks to everyone who wrote to offer support regarding my upcoming surgery. Always nice to get good wishes. If you're morbidly curious, my date is confirmed: September 18th at 3pm ET (2pm Central) is when they start a'cuttin'. Keep that in mind that Tuesday, ok? But my spirits are high (honestly). I've been more concerned about the library instruction session I have to do the day before. So, have no fear.
