Congratulations Martin, very inspiring.

Just read the background for the story on your blog.

It appears to have been an enjoyable process from start to finish.

Gardner Dozois wants "Murder on the Aldrin Express" for Year's Best Science Fiction Vol. 31.

I'm stunned. I can't sleep. I keep going back to the email to make sure it's real.

Thank you all for the encouragement. It really made a difference!

Grats Martin! I love that story. You did a fantastic job with it. I'm not surprised it made it to the year's best.

My story "Invictus" will be in the Shattered Shields anthology, coming out through Baen, and edited by the awesome duo Jennifer Brozek and Bryan Thomas Schmidt.

In other words, I'm in an anthology with Elizabeth Moon and Glen Cook. Squeeeeeeee!

"Butterflies" - Spark: A Creative Anthology, Volume IV, which is due out in January 1, 2014
"Selections from the Aarne-Thompson Index for After the End of Things" - The Next Review, #3 which is due out in ???

Congratulations, Stewart.
I too have good news: I just sold 2 more stories!
My seventh story (for children) was accepted by Cast of Wonders. Writing for kids was a new challenge, and not as easy as I thought it would be.
And I found out today that my eighth story was accepted by Perihelion. This was my first submission to them too, so this bodes well.
