[sale] Novelette “A Long Walk Home” to Subterranean Online

This morning, Subterranean Online has accepted my novelette, “A Long Walk Home”. I am mos def pleased.

This is another piece of the Sunspin continuity. It’s also a story idea that came to me in the late stages of chemo, when I could barely sign my name, let alone write fiction. So call this a bit of a personal victory on more levels than the usual headrush of selling a story.

Anent the Sunspin shorts, here’s a list of them so far, with a little bit of commentary.
