November 2010


Caught the moonset the other morning.

Realms of Fantasy is back, again. This is of particular interest to me because I had/have a story in the issue that was not/ but now will be coming out. This is the second time this has happened. “Healing Benjamin,” a story that has been very good to me was scheduled to appear in Realms when it went under before, but then it was rescued.  My story “The Banjo Singer,” was similarly accepted, then the mag died, but you can’t keep a good story down, and once again Realms is rescued.   “Banjo Singer” is a companion piece to “Here’s What I Know” (also published in Realms), which mythologizes my dad’s life.  This one’s about my mom. Anyway, the December issue.  Look for it.  Better yet, subscribe. Welcome back Realms! Woo-hoo! The good thing about resurrection is you get to celebrate twice, even if the death part’s a serious downer.

Spread the word that Realms lives. Anyone who has submissions in limbo there should check their website. Welcome back, Shawna!
