Fall Star*Line Arrives with Mermaid Vamp; Astounding Output Kindle On Sale at 99 Cents

Two items today, the first that the current issue of STAR*LINE arrived Friday afternoon with a three-line mermaid-vampiress poem, “Wet Work,” by me on page 12.  Hidden, where one would not expect her, look for her down in the depths on the right.  STAR*LINE is the publication of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Poetry Association (SFPA) which also runs an annual Rhysling competition for speculative poetry.  More information on that and STAR*LINE can be found on their website by pressing here.

Then ASTOUNDING OUTPOST (for more on which see just below, December 1) announces that a Kindle edition of NEURAL NETS, UPLINKS, AND WETWARE is now up and on sale for 99 cents for a limited time.  They don’t say for how long the sale will last, so to take advantage one should press here now.  Also don’t forget you can vote for my story, “No Place to Hide,” by using the link in the post below and, as a bonus, as it’s third in the contents in the Kindle edition one can read it in its entirety in the sample pages at the Amazon site (much more readable there than in the original web publication, which one can also find linked to at the end of the post just below).

    Haven’t gotten ours yet but wow! A mermaid vampiress! Are mermaids warm-blooded? Amphibians? They stay down under a long long time and live in castles of the deep. As well we all know …

  2. Hi Marge. Yes, I was moved Friday as well to finally order a DVD of THE LURE, a Polish variant of “The Little Mermaid” (reviewed here a while back) about two mermaid vampiresses in 1980s Warsaw (stopping off on their way to swimming to America). Also (back to STAR*LINE) liked your poem “Egress” plus Bruce’s “Blood Bite.”
