I'm a pastor and writer in the greater Chicago area. When not preaching about Christ's call to offer compassion, justice and acceptance to all people, I write stories about robots, aliens, and eldrich horrors from the dawn of time.
Some people seem to think that's an odd combination. Go figure. :)
Nano-Domini is in! The final TOC for ROBOTS BEYOND is up and I'm in it. That's fun and it's great to be in an anthology with so many friends. Bobbie and Leah didn't make it, which is too bad, but they are both up about finding good markets. Given the quality of the stories, I think that's justified. Richard was hopeful about the anthology too but the deadline came too fast.
Here's the final TOC:
1. Brannan/Electric Crown 2. Wong/The Last Protector 3. Sexton (as Holton)/Franchise Hell 4. Stiles/Burning Down the House 5. Lynn/Tinman 6. Carl/Crocus 7. Bishop/Narrative Device 8. Dunwoody/Other Dreams 9. Reynolds/The Strange Affair of the Artisan's Heart 10. Riley/Surveillance 11. Mosses/Primero 12. Donahue/The Cure 13. Lynch/Hothead 14. Oliver/How Coyote Made Robot 15. Sutherland/Again, Iabrochium 16. Adamson/Be Swift, My Soul 17. Jones/A Robot Named J35U5 18. Baugh/Nano-Domini 19. Wojtowicz/Are You Lonesome Tonight?
Rats! Looking at this I see there are no first names :(
Ah well. I thought I'd have until the end of the month to finish working on a submission for Gods and Monsters. I neglected to notice that the guidelines said, "04/30/08 or UNTIL FILLED".
That's too bad. I had a nifty little story of Mysterious Dave meeting werewolves and Nordic gods in the Old West. No big deal though, I can still finish that and shop it around to Fantasy and Science Fiction or Cemetary Dance. It's time to crack the big markets. :)
