First Pro-sale! Not So Strange Bedfellows.

I got an email last night from Hayden Trenholm at Bundoran Press. He wants to buy my story, “In Place of Darkness,” for his Strange Bedfellows anthology of political SF, due out in April 2014! This will be my first pro-sale, and first print sale, so I am of course delighted. (Gator still is doing her happy snappy dance around the living room. She says she’s too busy to come to the keyboard right now.)

An anthology of political SF seems highly appropriate anyhow, considering my background in politics. Progress, where I used to work, was closely associated with (and had its office in the street next door to) the Fabian Society, of which HG Wells was one of the more famous past members. Not that I mean to compare myself with the great HG or anything! But Labour politics and SF have always seemed to me to be rather comfortable bedfellows.

Maybe it’s a little soon to start soliciting sales, but, well, um, cough:

And yes, that’s Nebula award-winner Eugie Foster that’s already sold a story to the anthology. She’s not very well I’ve heard, which is very sad indeed. I wish you well, Eugie.

Hopefully I’ll get to post the full list of contributors soon.
