Two pieces of publishing-related news:
- My hypertext story “Neural Net” is now available on Ideomancer. Unlike most hypertext stories I’ve seen, I’m convinced that this one couldn’t have been told any other way except through hypertext. I must say, it gives me an appreciation of Woolf/Joyce/Faulkner that I never had before… WARNING: This story is NSFW & definitely not for kids. Rated at least R, maybe NC-17, for sex, disturbing imagery and foul language.
- Scott Andrews at Beneath Ceaseless Skies just bought my novelette “Serkers and Sleep”. Needless to say, given the market, this is secondary-world adventure fantasy. Look for it in April or thereabouts. This story had the benefit of all three of my crit groups — Writer’s Crucible, the Clarion 2009 Crit Group, and CSFW — and I owe many thanks to all 15-20 people who helped me with it.
