Story sold to Space and Time

I just heard from Space and Time that they will be publishing “Small Motel,” a weird alien abduction story—or maybe the narrator’s totally nuts—or both.  I don’t know the date yet, but till then, the opening paragraph:

First, they made a starship that looked like a replica of a small motel out west somewhere with its own stretch of blacktop, then abducted us.  American Owned, it said, because all the ones they’d seen had that right next to the Vacancy sign.  Most of them were probably lying too.  Jim, the alien at the front desk, big, fat, and expansive in his manner, told me I was a card when I asked him what planet he came from, but I kept after him.
