Sold “Tomorrow’s Dictator” to Apex Magazine

I’m in Spain, so there won’t be too too much blog updating in the next few weeks, but I’m just popping in to note that I sold a story to Apex Magazine. I actually sold it on January 1st, which was a great way to start the New Year. I’ve been submitting to Apex for five or six years now, ever since it was a fairly minor paper magazine. Since then, it’s gotten better at a much better rate than I have, and has reached the point where it’s actually publishing alot of interesting stories, so I’m really happy to have finally sold to them.

If anyone who knows me from Synergy ’06’-’07 is reading this blog, then you might perhaps have heard me expound (in a rather drunken fashion) on the idea that eventually became the genesis (five years later) of this story. Vive la Darcy.

Oh, also, my story “What Everyone Remembers” is up at Clarkesworld. I think that I like this story more than anything else I’ve ever published, so I encourage you to read it.

      Ugh, I hate it when stupid workjobs prevent one from reading fine literature.

    I read “What Everyone Remembers”, I enjoyed that immensely. It read smoothly and I particularly like your transitions.

    Also congrats on your sell, again. I fear a fiery jealously rumbles deep in my insides, or it was the homemade tacos, either way keep plugging away.
