Ooh, I know that story. You were kind enough to let me read it when you were "just a finalist". wotf011

My favorite line, "This wasn’t her universe--she hadn’t created it yet."

Love it.

Me three! And the motion is passed :) Who could resist two WOTFers in the issue (well I guess there's also that Eric Stone guy...and probably a few others I'm missing).

Thanks everybody! I'm still in fan girl awe--being in an issue along side the likes of Nick and Eric (not to mention OSC). It's a great way to make a professional debut.

And for those interested--as Dustin pointed out above--this story was my Q4 finalist. Special thanks to those of you who critted the whole thing and/or the first 450. You were all a big help!

And Grá Linnaea who wrote 'Life in Steam" in volume 26 (I think, I don't have it to hand), one of my favourite WOTF stories. There has been an issue where every single story was written by a WOTF winner (and Edmund, the editor, had no idea until a reader noticed).

"Life in Steam" was in Volume 25--the first WotF anthology I ever read. Great, strange little story.

I've known about this for a week, and now my gag order has been lifted and I can share my happy news. My WotF semi-finalist from last year, "Catch a Fallen Star," has been accepted by Fireside Magazine. I also found out within hours of that acceptance that my science-fiction flash "Caged" will appear in Every Day Fiction. Two acceptances in one day is a really, really good day.
