Dial Tone at Kasma SF

Dial Tone, a new piece of my flash fiction, went live at Kasma Science Fiction web-zine today.

There’s an interesting story behind the story.  Alex Korovessis, Kasma editor, sent me an e-mail yesterday.  He had read a drabble (flash fiction under 250 words) with the same title here at A Moving Line, liked it and wondered if I’d be interested in reworking the story to full flash length (1,000 words) and submit it to him for possible publication in Kasma.

Well sure.

I figured a couple days of work would do it, but I started the rewrite last night, got gobbled up by the idea and stayed up until 6:00 a.m. this morning to finish it.  I sent it along to Alex at 7:30 a.m. and ran off to a doctor’s appointment.  When I got home at noon, he’d replied.  He liked it, wanted to buy it.  Would I sell it to him?

Well sure!

It’s just after 2:00 p.m. (PST) right now.  The story is up and readable at Kasma and payment has been posted to Paypal.

Thank you Alex.  The story looks great and this is the quickest story/submission turn-around I’ve ever had.

God, I love electronic publication.

  1. Nice job, KC. One of my favorite reads is The Stand… but it ends too supernatural for me, as do many of King’s works. Yet, I am intrigued by the thought of what would happen if you were the only one… l like good endings and The Twilight Zone.
