Few can read the whole thing, as it's enormous. I've read a fair amount of the past anthologies. I think that most people read at least some of it, the question is how much.

Hi, it's me again.

Latest news:
Last night I received an email from Scarlet Leaf Review, saying that my story will be in the March 15 issue of the magazine, and another from Bride of Chaos Publications, saying that my story will be in 9Tales from Elsewhere #5 to be released on April 8.

So, together with my two stories already in Up and Coming and my other two stories to be published on March 21 and April 1, it makes 6 publications in the space of 1 month — compared to my 5 publications from the beginning of time until February 2016*. Not bad, huh?
(* not counting publications in Greek, obviously.)

By the way, 9Tales from Elsewhere #5 is already available for pre-order on Amazon.

Congrats, Aaron. I enjoyed your story. Quite imaginative and far-flung!
I also enjoyed George Nik's story too. Very poignant.

Thanks, Aaron! Yes, it's the one. And it was also in QuarterReads, and the Campbell anthology, and it's going to be up on a couple other places too. It almost makes up half of my sales -- since I've decided to break into the reprints market, and it's my most marketable reprint so far wotf008

Hilariously enough, so is Jon Lasser, Q4 1st place winner, which means that in the space of two weeks we're competing for the Golden Pen and the James White Award. There will now be a duel to decide the winner. Zeppelin Warfare at dawn!
