2) My story "Sapience and Maternal Instincts" was accepted as a reprint.
3) Yay!

From my Facebook:
I'm up to a full month's worth of film columns over at Amazing Stories. If you've been following along, I'd love to hear your feedback and/or suggestions for future topics. I plan on compiling the first year's worth--along with some of my previous nonfiction--into a full-length ebook at the end of this year, or in early 2014. It will likely be titled 'Like Tears in Rain: Meditations on Science Fiction Cinema in the Twenty-First Century,' or something similar. I'll share the cover artwork once it's finished.

Here's my latest article: "Karmic Demons and the Power of Compassion: Buddhist Philosophy in Modern Myth."

Fascinating post, Alex!

I had another haiku accepted--this time at Modern Haiku (another top-tier haiku 'zine).

Now if only I was as successful with fiction. wotf019

Congrats!

I feel the same way about my non-fiction sometimes. It's nice getting published, but I wish that some place like, say, Asimov's would notice me, too.

Noooooooooooooooooooo! wotf018

(I only meant it as a comment on the fact that I keep getting form rejections for fiction--surely publication as a decision is out of my hands, and not necessarily indicative of quality, and so comments about it aren't self-deprecating? wotf004 )

Don't know if this really belongs in the success thread, because they just asked and I provided, but I've got a short article on grounding the reader up at Penumbra's blog: http://penumbraezine.blogspot.com/2013/ ... eader.html

If they ask for it, I think it should count double. wotf011

wotf006 Well done Marina!

I made a sale to DSF recently. It is my second sale there, but the first that will count as SFWA qualifying as the first one was so short.
