Galaxy’s Edge goes fourth

Last week I had the nicest birthday present from Mike Resnick: an acceptance of my Greek myth mashup, Pandora Rising, to Galaxy’s Edge. I’ve been published in Galaxy’s Edge three times before, but only with flash; this will be my first full-length short story there. As I’ve just found out, I can now become an associate member of SFWA — although I’ll probably wait until I qualify for full membership to apply.

Funny coincidence: Believe it or not, as I’m reading the message and replying to Mike, my wife turns on the TV — and the show just happens to be a rendering of the myth of Pandora.

Fun facts (I love statistics!):
2nd sale in a couple of days
3rd sale in May
11th sale in 2017
37th lifetime sale (only counting short stories in English)
4th sale to Galaxy’s Edge
16th original story sale
10th pro-rates sale
4th sale to a SFWA-qualifying market

AntipodeanSF and other story acceptances

It seems that I’ve recently neglected mentioning my story sales here on the blog. Well, they are eight so far in 2017, and 34 since I started my “international” career. Not that I’m anywhere yet, but it’s obviously much better than a couple of years ago when I had five.

Recap:

January: original to Galaxy’s Edge

February: original to The Lane of Unusual Traders

March: reprints to Digital Fiction Pub’s QuickFic (two), Event Horizon 2017 and Best Vegan SFF 2016

April: two reprints to AntipodeanSF. To be more specific, they are General Zirkon’s Last Feelings (third sale) and The Game of Lives (second sale) — which is the eighth story I have sold at least twice.
