For people thinking about buying Bad Glass – Amazon | BN.com | Powell’s – here’s what Caitlín R. Kiernan, one of my all-time favorite writers, had to say about it:
“An impressive and promising debut. A breath of fresh air in the stale literature of apocalypse. A chilling, surreal, terrible, beautiful book.”
(An edited version of this quote appears on the final cover, but it changes around the “terrible, beautiful book” part, which I love dearly.)
So, listen to Caitlín, buy Bad Glass. (And while you’re at it, buy The Drowning Girl: A Memoir. It’s a wonderful, wonderful book.)
My short, short, short story, “Not the Destination,” is now available on the Daily Science Fiction website. Go check it out.
I have a (tiny) story coming out from Daily Science Fiction in 2 days. If you want to get it the moment it comes out, sign up now! The story goes out to subscribers, via email, on October 3rd. It will also go up on their webpage after a week (I’ll link to it here), but you should really support Jonathan & Michele by signing up for their e-mail digest.
They gave me my first professional sale — last year’s “Filling Up the Void” — and for that they’ll always be awesome.
As for the story itself, I’m not kidding when I say it’s tiny. It’s called “Not the Destination,” and it’s 102 words long.
