I’ve had four or five small sales since I last posted in November 2011 but the big news is that Mike Alexander and I sold our collaboration, The Moon Belongs to Everyone, to Analog. It’s alternate history noir set on the Moon in 1979. The “what-if” of the story is what if America hadn’t backed away from the Moon after Apollo 17 in 1972? Look for it in the December 2012 issue.

Got e-mail from Every Day Fiction this morning. They’ve accepted a piece of non-SF flash from me. First Time is a peek at daughter-father relationships and a take on growing up. I love writing flash fiction. It has an intensity that’s often missing in my longer stories.

Tod McCoy of Hydra House Books delivered an ARC of Snapshots from a Black Hole and Other Oddities to me last night. Publication is set for January 23rd, the day after my birthday. Launch will be at Rustycon, here in Seattle. The book looks great!

I sold This Little Piggy to Big Pulp today.
It’s a tongue-in-cheek short-short, a story George Orwell and E.B. White might have cranked out in collaboration, if they had met on an ocean crossing. It’s also one of my personal favorites. I’m pleased to see it’s found a home.
And in other news, got a chance to look at the preliminary sketches for the Lifting Up Veronica cover by artist Nico Photos. It blew me away, can’t wait to see the finished product.

Just got this final cover art for my short-story collection — Snapshots from a Black Hole & Other Oddities. Tod (Tod McCoy) of Hydra House Books and Chris (Christopher Sumption) are still tinkering with the type face and all the blurbs aren’t in yet.
I know I’m biased, but I think it’s pretty freaking cool.
Great job, Chris!
