Publishing Update

Yep, it's finally out.

A short story of mine found a home in the anthology Elements of the Fantastic, put out by Coscom Entertainment, a small s/f and fantasy oriented press in Canada. If at all interested, the book is available through Coscom's website, and also through Project Pulp and of course Amazon.

The anthology contains six short stories, all of which play with the tropes of fantasy to varying degrees. Although I have the e-book version sitting on my computer's hard drive, I'm waiting for my hard copy to get to me by snail mail before I read it. I just can't read long pieces on the computer screen. Looking forward to getting it, though.

In more current writing news, I'm obsessed with religions that worshipped cats. I've been having troubles with my current story, and a lot of it goes back to not having the weird cult of cat worshippers fleshed out. I'm hoping research into this stuff will help. If not, it's fun reading anyway. There are some crazy people out there!

Tomorrow Miss L and I are heading up to Philly to pay homage to Salvador Dali at the retrospective at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. I'll probably stop in and say "Hi" to Marcel Duchamp as well. I can never pass up a chance to stare at the large glass for a time (museum curators take note.....it's past time for a major retrospective of Duchamp!). Full report when I get back on Saturday.

Excelsior.

I'm excited to read it! Okay, it's true, I'm biased, but even so, I can still be excited :)

Congrats on the publication! I hear they extended the Dali show because it was really popular.

Yeah, it was a mobhouse. They're running the exhibit everday 10 am to 7:30 pm, a good two hours after everything else closes, and still selling out everyday. But it's the only U.S. venue for the show. I'm sure that's a big part of it. A fabulous show, though. Well worth the $20 a pop.

Thanks for the kind words, everyone.
