Happy Happy Joy Joy

Finally, an opportunity to pat myself on the back. My short story "Trepanning The Obese" was accepted by Theatre Of Decay magazine. It's a print magazine, not an online publication. This thrills me. Actual paper. Dead trees, hooray! I'll be in issue #2 due for publication on 1/1/06. Go visit their website and take a peek. Just click on that cover. Due to this fortuitous event, the story is no longer here on my website. I plan to make it available again here six months after publication.

Aside from that, I'll be posting a dead letter tomorrow. This one is from Sid Vicious to a punk girl I know.

I've been lazy the last week. I wrote a little bit of my dark magic railroad mystery. I began another story about a boy who always obeys his parents. I even wrote a poem. (I was drunk, you see, in general, I find poetry to be vaguely embarrassing.) I will have content posted this week. That's a promise.

Rock out with your cock out!

Congratulations! I'll be so happy to say I knew you before you reigned at the top of the literary hierarchy.

Dude! That is awesome news. I can't wait to read it.

You'll always remember this day. People always remember when they got their first official piece sold to a real magazine. I'm jealous of you!

Solid Steve. You're worthy and then some.

(I find poetry vaguely embarrassing too... but sometimes in ways that delight.)
