Brad's in Analog AGAIN...

Postby Martin L. Shoemaker » Tue Oct 11, 2011 5:11 pm

...and he has the cover!

Of course, that's not news if you follow his blog. But I just got my copy, and oh does it look nice!

I'm digging into the story now (as my own writing permits -- my latest story is very needy). It's great so far!

He's like a serial Analog contributor now, and so soon too. I mean, just . . . wow. "Ray of Light" is a beautifully written, imaginative story. Just a great read. No wonder it got the cover. Brad is a mucho talented writer-in-arms! You should all storm your local B&N and get a copy. RIGHT NOW. MARCH! wotf009

Go Brad!!! wotf010

Thank you, everyone. Yup, didn't take long to "establish" myself with the English language's oldest and most widely circulated science fiction magazine. After all the many years of zilch, it's heartening to finally be having some nice success. I am glad people are finding "Ray of Light" worthwhile. Like I said in Brass Tacks in the back of the magazine, "Outbound" set the bar high, so I aim to deliver.

Awesome! I don't have Analogue, but usually drag the kids to play in Barns N Noble to read a few stories here and there. Looking forward to taking a look at it!! Congrats Brad!!

Not only is Brad in Analog; now he's in Analog's new anthology! And he's in there with some awfully big names, including my inspiration, Barry B. Longyear!

Think of it, people... Two years ago, he was unknown. That's the sort of visibility the contest can get you IF you do diligent follow-through (which we all know Brad has done).

Is that Brad's entire story OUTBOUND there in the sampler?! (Squeezed for time right now, but I'll be back to read it if t'is! Looked like no "this page left blanks" though ...)

Because that IS a great "sampler" for the book AND a tasty marketing coup for a writer, Brad, to be the big exposure face for the whole anthology! wotf008

I wouldn't know. As an impulse shopper, I skipped right past the sampler and just bought it.

Heck, now that I think about it, I never even noticed the price!

I do bear a resemblance to Dr. Evil.

Happy 18th!

So where can I get a copy at this point? I don't have an ereader (yet), and the stores don't have the December issue anymore. Analog's webiste doesn't say anything about back copies.

Am I too late?

I snoozed, i guess.... :(

From their FAQ:

Analog sells recent back issues directly from the editorial offices. Simply send an email to analog@dellmagazines.com requesting the issues you'd like. We will then get back to you with availability, prices (generally cover price with ship costs), and where to send your payment.

For older back issues, you can try posting a message to our forum to see
if any other readers would be willing to part with the issue(s) you want, or find a local SF shop that sells back issues, or check out conventions.

I am proud to announce that my friend and collaborator Alastair Mayer and I have sold our novelette, "Strobe Effect," to Analog Science Fiction & Fact. I had a lot of fun working on this story with Al. I think we both brought our strengths to the piece, and it's one of those stories whose sum is greater than the parts of the whole? Or however that shop-worn phrase is supposed to go. (grin) Anyway, first sale of the year for me. And January's not even over yet. I like this trend.

Since I don't see any updates on Duotrope, I've gotta ask... How long was the wait?

Exactly three months: October 31 to January 31.

Yes, yes, the Bullfrog sequel is coming, but not before the sequel to, "The Chaplain's Assistant," gets done.
