The November/December issue of Analog just came in the mail. It contains my short story Yamadori.
No illustration, and no cover credit. But one of these days…
Besides that, Silver Blade publishing is soon releasing my novella A Light so Brilliant and Wondrous, a retelling of Frankenstein. And I’m now editing the follow-up to How the Ray Gun Got its Zap! (which I’m calling [Zap! II for now) for Oxford University Press, to be published sometime in 2020.
Picked it up at Powel’s Books this morning. Interesting mixture of mechanics and nature that I haven’t encountered before in fact or fiction-well done. About the “nature” part-is that branch of horticulture a hobby of yours, or was that just good research?
It’s all research. I’ve been kind of fascinated by the topic for years – this was just an excuse to dig a little deeper and use the information.
And, as Antibob pointed out, how you get it doesn’t affect what I get paid. In fact, I was paid well before this hit the newsstands. it’s not a lot of money, though. There’s no way I could support myself on my writing alone.
