My story "The Nightmare Beast" is now available at Story Portals for all readers (last week only registered members could view, but registration is free!). Story Portals is a new shared world hub currently featuring the adventures of the lady assassin, Katya. A new story by a different author is released every week and they have other character-based properties that will be launching in the coming months.

Other WotF winners have upcoming stories set in the Katya universe, so if you liked the WotF stories by Jordan Lapp, Jason Fischer, or Eric James Stone, keep an eye out! Their stories will be releasing in the coming weeks.

Cool interview, Kyle -- congrats! wotf008

It's always interesting to read a good interview that lets folks really understand the artist's creative approaches to character and story and their own writing ... and the context of the fictional story within the real world etc ...

My story Random Fire is now up at Abyss & Apex. This one has an odd structural gimmick to it, so I am anxious to see if people notice that and what they think of it if they do.

I really liked it, Aaron -- though the structural gimmick did throw me at first. When I figured it out, I thought it was perfect for the story. Made a two-dimensional medium three-dimensional, so to speak.

Thanks, I appreciate that! I hope the story didn't hit too close to home for you. wotf014

That is indeed an honor. I have the dishonor of never getting off my butt and submitting to them, even though I really liked the idea of the anthology.

I got form-rejected for this anthology as well, with my Q3 2010 story, which is now rightfully trunked. That is some gorgeous cover art, though...

Congrats vanaaron and Steve!

Vanaaron-read your story. Nice Job! And wow what an emotional story. I was holding my breath at the end. All the science stuff at the beginning was hard for me to follow. Where do you get all your science info from? Do you have a background or just really good at research. Or was it all made up and I fell for it? Can you tell I have no clue when it comes to physics?

Steve - I'm unfamiliar with the anthology and what it is about. I'll have to look into it, but it's cool to see so many others on the forum in it.
