A Robot, a Cyborg, and a Martian Were Running a Bit Late

Another short trip in the wayback machine:  how many recall A ROBOT, A CYBORG, AND A MARTIAN WALK INTO A SPACE BAR. . . . (cf. May 28, 26)?  To quote from Publisher Nomadic Delirium Press, “[a]s you might be able to guess, or at least we hope you can guess, this is an anthology of comedic science fiction.  So, if you think you can tickle our funny bone with your SF story, we want to see it. . .  We will also consider fantasy humor, but we would prefer SF.”  Originally the book was scheduled to come into being just after Halloween, on November 1.  Well, you know how these things go, try to get even three Earthlings together for an appointment at a given time.

So in this case another book ahead of it on the publisher’s schedule suffered an unexpected delay and, again from the horse’s mouth, “we thought we’d post an update here.  . . .  We’re hoping to release this collection in December, but the reality is that it will probably be January.  Everything is still on course, and we still want to use all the stories that we’ve already accepted.

“For authors who have stories appearing in the collection, you can expect contracts in late November or early December.”

Such is the life of the publisher, the writer, and also sometimes the reader.  My story in this one is titled “Toast” and, perhaps ironically, is about breakfast (well, possibly one or two other things too).  So maybe in  time for a post-New Year’s brunch. . . ?
