Growing Concerns Received; First Sundays Reading with Ghouls and Demons; Worst Christmas Correction?

A few short notes to start the new month, the first being that the electronic version of Chupa Cabra’s GROWING CONCERNS (cf. January 20, 9, et al.) arrived yesterday.  Actually published in January, it comes in at just under 200 pages with 18 tales of ecological horror plus introduction — plants gone wild! — with my own contribution, “Seeds,” originally published in the February 1997 edition of KEEN SCIENCE FICTION, in the next-to-last spot in the table of contents.

Then in today’s pre-Super Bowl activity, the local Writers Guild’s First Sunday Readings series started off the year, having missed the beginning of January due to excessively inclement weather (see January 5, et al.), with fiction readings by Darja Malcolm-Clarke and Donna Lodge and an essay and poems by Mary Pat Lynch.  Then in the following open mike session, I led off with an as yet unpublished flash tale of an evening in a Transylvanian graveyard called “Demons Are a Ghoul’s Best Friend.”

And finally, a possible correction to the previous post, in that my tale of “The Worst Christmas Ever” may, according to recent Facebook postings, be in Volume 2, not Volume 1, of HEARTCORE:  THE SPECIAL SNOWFLAKES ANTHOLOGY — but they may be being published simultaneously, so from a reader’s point of view it may not make a lot of difference.  In any event, perhaps I’ll find out when the contract arrives.
