The third issue of International Speculative Fiction, which reprints my story “The Man on the Moon” (originally published in The Dragon and the Stars), is now live for download! I want to thank editor-in-chief Roberto Mendes for contacting me about reprinting my story, and fiction editor Ricardo Loureiro for writing the wonderful introduction to my story in the editorial:
Almost at the closing of the press (not the most accurate expression in this digital age, but nonetheless it conveys the idea) I came by Crystal Koo and her earth-shattering – in more ways than one – The Man in the Moon, a story for all the lovers, all the dreamers, and fitting to the end-of-times feeling that affects us all.
I had previously made the full-text of the story available in this blog for voting purposes for the 2011 Aurora Award (which the anthology won!); now that the story’s up in ISF, I’m cutting it down to an excerpt (in the old blog) so everyone can hop on over to ISF to take a look!
