This has been my most successful year so far for short stories, which is ironic because I'd decided to set aside all by short fiction writing and focus on a novel.
My best laid plans have gang oft aglay. (Now I know how the mice feel.)
Anyway, I heard back from jean-Marc Lofficier last night. It looks like "What Rough Beast" will be a part of vol 7 of TALES OF THE SHADOWMEN. I say "looks like" because there are enough good submissions that he may have to push a story back to the next volume.
Anyway, the year to date looks like this:
"The Inside Man" - THE GREEN HORNET CHRONICLES
"Decently and Quietly Dead" - SIX GUNS STRAIGHT FROM HELL
"Zorro and the Bruja" - MORE TALES OF ZORRO
"Just Like Magic" (with Richard Dean Starr) - MORE TALES OF ZORRO
"What Rough Beast" - TALES OF THE SHADOWMEN: VOLUME 7
"Invisible Empire" - THE AVENGER CHRONICLES II
Submissions I Haven't Heard Back on Yet
"Adrift on Other Seas" - HIGH SEAS CTHULHU II
"The Cwoss-Time Twaveller" - TIMES OF TROUBLE
"The Adventure of the Ethical Assassin" - SHERLOCK HOLMES ANTHOLOGY
"Kumiho" - KOLCHAK, THE NIGHT STALKER ANTHOLOGY
"The Un-Kosher Golem" - BACONOLOGY
I suppose a little ganging aglay never hurt anyone, but 2011 will be the year of the novel!
