The third issue of International Speculative Fiction, which reprints my story “The Man on the Moon” (originally published in The Dragon and the Stars), is now live for download! I want to thank editor-in-chief Roberto Mendes for contacting me about reprinting my story, and fiction editor Ricardo Loureiro for writing the wonderful introduction to my story in the editorial:
Almost at the closing of the press (not the most accurate expression in this digital age, but nonetheless it conveys the idea) I came by Crystal Koo and her earth-shattering – in more ways than one – The Man in the Moon, a story for all the lovers, all the dreamers, and fitting to the end-of-times feeling that affects us all.
I had previously made the full-text of the story available in this blog for voting purposes for the 2011 Aurora Award (which the anthology won!); now that the story’s up in ISF, I’m cutting it down to an excerpt so everyone can hop on over to ISF to take a look!
The table of contents for the third issue of International Speculative Fiction is out! It includes a reprint of my story “The Man on the Moon.” My story was originally going to appear on the April issue but they realized they wanted it live earlier. This issue will be available on 25 January 2013.
