Black Eyed Moon

My story "Black Eyed Moon" is now appearing in the pages of Fantasy Magazine #3, and you can get your copy here. I don't have mine yet, but I'm really looking forward to it. I'm especially proud of this story. When people ask me what kind of fiction I write, I never know what to say, but now I think of just showing them this story (a fiction business card?) and letting it speak for me.

As for my computer woes, second verse, same as the first. Won't be changing any time soon. I'm about as poor as a boy can be, and now I thank my friend and mentor Dr. Daniel Dahlquist, who long ago promised me a vibrant career as a starving artist. Monetarily challenged as I am, it makes it hard to do the things I want or need to (glasses, the zine -- somewhat helped by the amazing talents of Amy Doherty, thank you, thank you -- leaving the Loo) but that's the way the cookie crumbles.

Excellent, excellent post about Joss Whedon and the exercise of feminism in his work here. I found this very thoughtful and interesting since I'm lately considering a lot of this in my own work as well. My fiction has always been dominated by women, and the last week I've been revising the first book of the Big Damn Trilogy (to get back in the mindset for the third book) and I've discovered a world of mothers, good, bad and indifferent, and very, very few men.

I just finished reading "Black Eyed-Moon." I thought it was fantastic, one of the best stories I've read in a while. You did a good many things very well in that story.
