So I'd posted here before, back at the beginning of this blog, about the story I wrote that was going to be published in an anthology of short stories. That anthology hit the bookshelves on November 29, 2005, and while I have no idea if it's in stock anywhere, it's definitely in the computers at Borders, and it's up on Amazon.com (ranking in the top half a million titles -- heh).
Anyway, less than a month later, I got an e-mail from a woman who is editing another anthology for the same publisher. This one is a science fiction anthology. The submission period had started on August 15 and was due to end in less than a week (she e-mailed me on December 26, and the deadline was the end of the year), but she'd just gotten a copy of the book with my story in it, and she liked it a lot. So she got my e-mail address and wrote to ask me if I had anything I could submit for it. There was an extension to January 20, so I figured I'd give it a try.
I'm not 100% sure she's going to accept the story, even though she wrote to me, because it doesn't completely meet the criteria for the anthology, but I really liked the story, and if she doesn't want it, I'll probably submit it to Asimov's. The story is called "Runaway", and I honestly don't know how to describe it other than to say it's about a chase.
But it was wicked cool to be asked, even if she winds up not using it.
