A Martian, Etc., Closed, Scheduled to Be Out November 1; Contracts, Contracts. . . .

As a quick update on A ROBOT, A CYBORG, AND A MARTIAN WALK INTO A SPACE BAR. . . (see Monday’s post, two down), with my story “Toast” one of the morsels of humor therein — peanuts as it were in the taproom of PUNbookOFhorrormirth, the anthology has now been filled and is closed as of today.  Also a release date of November 1 has been announced.

Then routine, routine. . . .  Two contracts came in today to be signed, the first, to be returned with accompanying blurb and bio, from DAILY SCIENCE FICTION for my bizarro-ish short-short “Rocky Road” (see May 18).  Things are moving fast, at least at the front end.  Then in a somewhat more leisurely manner (the original submission was in last September, though with its acceptance procedures have picked up), the contract for THE PUN BOOK OF HORROR STORIES arrived from the UK for “Olé Bubba and the Forty Steves” (cf. March 8), a tale of zombies and the running of the bulls in Pamplona Spain, originally published in 2005 in Yard Dog Press’s INTERNATIONAL HOUSE OF BUBBAS.  This one also is to be returned with an up-to-date bio.

And so the writer’s life continues on a lovely, sun-drenched late May evening.
