Working fast!  Just nine days after returning the contract, yesterday saw the receipt of the proof copy for “The Candle and the Flame,” set to be published next month at 3 p.m. EST on the thirteenth by DARKFUSE MAGAZINE (cf. November 28).  After a bit of a bobble due to a bad attachment (nine blank pages, no typos there!), the real stuff candle_headercame and later last night I sent it back with only two corrections at my end.  “The Candle and the Flame” is a steampunk tale of capitalist economics partially based on Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Little Match Girl” — not my first foray into that particular story — but of a seller of candles, not matches.  “The Candle and the Flame,” also, is set in a universe where there are no angelic grandmas to convey little girls’ souls up to Heaven, not exactly.  But if its “Candle Girl” should come to an unlucky end consider this:  the announced January 13 2017 publication date falls on a Friday.
