Big Interzone news

Issue 215 of Interzone arrived in my mailbox this week and my name is listed on page two under the "coming soon: stories by ..." section. According to Interzone editor Andy Cox, my story "The Ships Like Clouds, Risen By Their Rain" is tentatively slated for issue 217. Vincent Chong is also illustrating the story, which is amazing news because I'm a big fan of his artwork. You can see samples of his work here.

In even more exciting news, Andy e-mailed me today to say that a second story of mine, "When Thorns Are The Tips Of Trees," has just been accepted by Interzone. I'd like to publicly thank Andy, Jetse de Vries, and all the editors of Interzone for the faith and support they've shown my writing.
