Updates

Latest batch of sales include a movie option for SOOTHSAYER to Intrinsic Value Films. “Perfection” went to the very first issue of Future Science Fiction Digest. “Isaac Intrepid’s Paradox” went to the anthology Timeshift. “Redchapel” went to Pulphouse. “The Ten Commandments” went to the Holy C.O.W anthology. And I delivered THE MISTRESS OF ILLUSIONS, the second volume of the Dreamscape Trilogy, to DAW Books.
As I write this, I’m currently putting together the 36th issue of Galaxy’s Edge, which will mark our 6th birthday.

Some more story sales

Just sold “The Ten Commandments” to HOLY C.O.W., a forthcoming anthology, and re-sold “The Pale Thin God” to ALTERNATIVE THEOLOGY FOR THE RELIGIOUS RIGHT, another anthology. That should get religious science fiction out of my system for a few months.
