Name Day Arrives

My short story, Name Day, arrived as part of the Children of the Rune anthology, released today in electronic form (and in paper in August or so).

The anthology is, of course, cheaper as a PDF than it is as a dead tree brick. As a new release, it's $4 for the first few days. If you pick it up and like it, let me know. If you hate it, there's 12 other stories in the anthology that may be more entertaining, by Jeff Grubb and Ed Greenwood and a few other folks who you may have heard of. It's all set in Monte Cook's shared world of The Diamond Throne, and fits pretty well in the broader fantasy tradition. I'm ridiculously happy for what is, after all, my 50th publication or so.

Anyway, the story turned out pretty well, and I'm off and running on the next one. I'd be very interested to hear whether people would rather read another story featuring the same protagonist, or a completely new story in the same setting.

Whoo hoo! This does call for a whoo hoo, seeing your name in print under a title you wrote. Wish I had paypal, guess I'll wait for the tree brick version. Will it be available on Amazon?

Yes, it will be on Amazon. Malhavoc Press gets very good distribution to the book trade and major online retailers.

Don't know if you'll see this
Name Day was a great story. Too bad I didn't catch your blog then, as I'd have loved to weigh in my 5 cents on this. I look forward to seeing more AU stuff from you.

Thanks for the kind words, Søren — luckily, LJ notifies me of every comment. I'm happy to find that the Council of Magisters is aware of this blog.

I've got a story in the next anthology as well, and I'll be curious to hear your reaction to that one.
