Our Stories Define Us


A few pieces of bright writing news surfaced in the middle of last week's morass:

My short story, "Scar Tissue Wings", will appear in this year's Triangulation: Morning After anthology (pending a few edits). Thanks to Stephen Ramey and the crew for including my work again. "Scar Tissue Wings" was written as a response to my time in the hospital with Max back in December. Funny how stories give us perspective.

I received a contract from the incomparable Jodi Lee for "The Monster Game" which will appear in Return to New Bedlam. Jodi kindly asked if I'd like to include Aimee's name in the dedication. Thanks, Jodi.

My books are slowly resurfacing in Amazon.com's Kindle store. You can now find digital copies of Echoes of the Dead and The House Eaters with more on the way. All the "also boughts" are gone, but the books are there. Two weeks ago, this seemed like the most important thing in my life.

I was young and foolish, then.



The world is absurd. Just absurd.

Thanks for sharing it with me.

I finally get to share a ToC with Aaron Polson. This is big.

Psalm 147:3 -- Praying for you every day, sir.

Aaron Polson said...

Thanks, Milo. Glad to share the ToC. Triangulation has been my favorite anthology each year, and it's again an honor to be included.

Congratulations on all the writing news, Aaron. The Triangulation anthos are just so awesome. <3

Also, yay Brian Eno. Sending hugs and things.

I'm glad Amazon is un-screwing your books. I was really worried about that for you. Congratulations on the stories too.

Perspective changes fast, but some things are still important.

Just when I thought you couldn't get cooler, you post one of my favourite Eno tracks.

Take care dude.

You're in another Triangulation antho! (actually this doesn't surprise me).

How lovely that Jodi is including Aimee's name in the dedication for Return to New Bedlam. I look forward to reading your story.
