I’ve been sending this one around for a while, but it finally got published. It’s on a free internet site.
The story is A Light so Brilliant and Wondrous, and you can find it here:
It’s a retelling of the story of Frankenstein – with one small change.
I sent it in to Analog, who held it for a long time. They rejected it, but said that
a.) It was the best thing I’d sent them so far
b.) Even though they hold up “Frankenstein” as an example of early science fiction, they implied that there just wasn’t enough science in this one.
In any event, read it for yourself.
I have another story, The Game of Hare and Hounds, coming out soon in 20,000 Leagues Remembered, an anthology published in honor of the 150th anniversary of the publication of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. I don’t know the date yet, but it’s being published by Pole-to-Pole Publishing.
