They Fall Like Apples: Ether World Picks Up Jeremy’s Woman

Sometimes they fall like apples from trees.  Yeah, if it were only so!  But this time, at least, in the past three days I have had three (count ‘em!) story acceptances.

So let us treasure it.  Late Sunday evening saw IN THE BLOODSTREAM take the Lovecraftian Christmas tale “A Christmas Carnage,” Monday brought Chupa Cabra’s acceptance of  “Invisible People” for WE WALK INVISIBLE, and then today, Tuesday, came this word from Diabolic Publications (cf. September 21, et al.):  “After reviewing your short story we would like the opportunity to include it in our upcoming anthology ETHER WORLD.”

The story in question is called “Jeremy’s Woman” and, as for ETHER WORLD, the call was for “original science fiction in which some facet of future science or technology is integral to the plot. The science needs to be physical, sociological, or psychological.  The technology can be any form such as electronic engineering, biogenetic engineering, and so forth.  All stories must be strong and realistic, with believable characters that may or may not be human.”

Thus “Jeremy’s Woman” who, herself, may or may not be human but also may be more than Jeremy and his team of space explorers expect.  And as for science fiction, it may add a tinge of horror as well.

Currently plans for ETHER WORLD are for a release date in January 2014.


  1. Wow, good things come in trio’s, apparently!
    Congrats, Jim!

  2. Yes, though of course now that I’ve noted it, the successes seem to have stopped. Still, in the immortal words of Scarlet O’Hara, tomorrow is another day.
