Overland Sale

Jeff Sparrow has purchased my story, 'Excerpts from Books 50 Years From Now' for Overland.

It will appear in a special Against Reality issue, which, from what I hear, will also include interviews with Kim Stanley Robinson, China Mieville, and Justine Larbalestier. Don't go quoting me on that, though, since I'm remembering conversations with Rjurik Davidson off the top of my head.

At any rate, that will bring the year's total of short fiction up to five originals, and two reprints. I don't imagine there will be more appearing this year, and anything I sell from this point will appear next year, because publishing is that slow. Next year, I imagine, won't be anywhere near this number, since I'm spending most of my time this year writing Across the Seven Continents of the Underworld, and I've nothing new written, but, with that said, you never know. At any rate, five original shorts published within a year is about the most that I can manage and that's plenty fine by me.

Sounds interesting, anyway.

So how long does it take you to write a short story?
Jul. 6th, 2007 08:51 am (UTC)
there's no real set time. a day, a week, a month. i've done it all. it's just more that i only ever produce a handful in a year that i reckon are worth sending out.

Five sales is nothing to sneeze at.

I'll be on the lookout for Overland.
