Some of you may remember a piece I published here on the blog a bit ago called “Season of Rust.” An edited version of that is out now in the latest issue of The Illuminata. If you follow the link, the issue is free for download. It’s near the top, Volume 9, Issue 1, April 2011. There’s a number of good reviews in there of SF books as well. And don’t forget to check out the Tyrannosaurus Press dot Com website for more goodies.
In writing news, I’m very happy with much in the past few days. I’ve started working on “Under the Ember Star” and it is going very well. I missed yesterday because I gave my last test and had to get that graded and turned in. But in the couple of days before that I’d made great progress on the piece, which I’m envisioning as a novella. It’s so amazing what one can accomplish when you have a few focused hours to string together. And by day 2 my sheer joy of writing fiction was starting to come back to me. It’s not easy to experience that joy when you only have a few minutes here and there to produce a paragraph or two. To really immerse yourself in the story and its world is where the pleasure comes from.
Have a great Sunday. Lana and I are planning a picnic today.
