I just got word this morning that I won the powerball. (Well, okay, I won $4. Literally, just the powerball number... wotf001 )

More seriously, and more excitingly for me, I also received word that my short story "Raising Words" is going to be included in the Japanese mythology themed issue of Penumbra. As some of you may know, I'm a bit of a Japanese culture junkie, so I'm particularly excited to be in that issue in particular.


Congratulations, that's awesome!

And, yes, I sold my WotF semi-finalist to Fireside last fall. More recently I sent the editor a flash and received back a very nice rejection today that he enjoyed the story but it wasn't a good fit for the market.

You sell a story to a Japanese themed anthology? I'm shocked, I say, shocked! (Congratulations!)

I guess so, something like that. It was published 10 days later than the date in my contract, so I guess yours might be the same.

Congrats, Elinor. I'll find some time to read it.

Cosmos is a good market. I know the fiction editor, Cat Sparks. She's an excellent writer. Her own collection has just been released by Ticonderoga.
