Sold “An Early Adoption” to Redstone Science Fiction

Yep, good news is just blowing in from all over the place. I think this is one of my favorite short stories, so I’m glad that it’s found a home. This would’ve been the first time I’d sold two stories in a row, if it had not been preceded–two hours earlier–by a rejection from Beneath Ceaseless Skies. C’est la vie. This is the second story I’ve sold to Redstone. The first–“Death’s Flag Is Always At Half-Mast” was published in August 2010.

Oh, it’s going to be published on April 2nd, so you’ll get to read it rull soon.

In other news, I’m going to be at FOGCon (right here in the Bay Area) on Friday and Saturday. I don’t know if any blog-readers will be around, but if you see me, feel free to say ‘hi’.

And in my final news, I watched Battle Royale (a Japanese movie from the 1990s in which a bunch of kids are taken to an island and forced to fight each other) today. The only way in which it differs from the Hunger Games is that it lacks the reality-show element (but it does have innocent kids killing each other [something that HG notably lacks]. I particularly liked one scene where a roomful of girls murder each other over a misunderstanding.)
