Well, this is nice. I received request to have my superhero-themed short story, “Downfall”, reprinted for an upcoming anthology by Rich Horton. Rich is an SF enthusiast, avid reader, and reviewer for publications like Black Gate, Fantasy Magazine, and Locus. He read “Downfall” when it first appeared in the Lou Anders-edited Masked and had very nice things to say about it at the time, referring to it as “nicely twisty […] involving throughout, with some worthwhile surprises.”
Looks like I’ll be in great company, sharing the pages of this collections alongside the likes of Peter S. Beagle and Kelly Link.
From the book jacket: “Superheroes: modern gods and goddesses, remote, revered, but like the pantheon of heroes and heroines of ancient myth, great power tempered with flaws. And now, find within these pages tales by gifted and award-winning authors who move superheroes from the four-color panels of comic books to fiction… reminding every adult of the child within, who ever wanted to wear a cape and cowl!”

On December 26th, I’ll be joining Barbara Barnett on Blog Talk Radio for the first of a two-part Stargate: Universe-themed discussion. If you’d like to ask participate, tune in at 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, December 26th, when we’ll be chatting about/fielding questions on SGU’s first season. Then, tune in again January 2nd for a discussion on season 2. And, if you’re feeling particularly bold and questiony, call in at (718) 305-6982 when we’re on the air. Details here: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/barbara-barnett/2012/12/27/lets-talk-tv-special-stargate-universe-season-1 … [update: the Q&A forum will be open to questions about all three Stargate shows – SG-1, Atlantis, and Universe].
So, provided the world doesn’t end (again) tomorrow, what are all your holidays plans?
