Short story sale to Solaris Rising 2: The New Solaris Book of Science Fiction

At last it can be told (as the contract has been received and replied to): my science fiction short story “Still Life With Skull” has sold to editor Ian Whates for inclusion in Solaris Rising 2: The New Solaris Book of Science Fiction, which is scheduled to appear in March 2013. The anthology lineup includes folks like Norman Spinrad, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Nancy Kress, Eugie Foster, Paul Cornell, Allen Steele, Kay Kenyon, Vandana Singh, Robert Reed and more, so to say I’m excited is a bit of an understatement.

It’s a bit of a personal coup for me, too. “Still Life” is a slightly less (but only slightly) off-the-chain companion piece to my zany sf short story “Twa Sisters” that appeared earlier this year in Not One of Us. In fact, several of the same characters turn up — though, except for the ruling Hierophant, they all have different names.

I can haz sci-fi universe?

Congratulations. I loved "Twa Sisters", so looking forward to revisiting that world. Also, that's a great list of contributors.
