Good news this morning. John Joseph Adams has purchased my short story, Snapshots I Brought Back from the Black Hole, for a June 2011 publication at Lightspeed magazine.
It’s my fourth pro-rates sale.
Snapshots was my “seventh” Clarion West story. It’s about humanity’s first voyage to explore a black hole, 1,600 light years from Earth. It’s narrator is an Artificial Intelligence named Mikhail, the communications officer of Interstellar Vessel Albert Einstein.
I had hoped to have the story done for week six critiquing at CW, but just flat ran out of time, so I substituted Gossamer Yellow, a ghost story.
Thanks, John. I can hardly wait!
