New short story: “Sarah’s Child”

Posted on: May 19, 2014

I’ve got a new short story up at Strange Horizons today!

And thus endeth the long, no-fiction-being-published drought. Whew.

Some notes on the story, if you’re interested in that sort of thing: It came from a dream that wouldn’t leave me alone. Basically, it’s the first dream Sarah has, with a few changes. I’ve written a couple things dealing with my own (rather voluntary) infertility; this is one, the forthcoming book SEEKER STAR is the second.

The setting is similar to my old hometown. I don’t usually do that; but this story wanted to be close to home.

Yeah, it’s focused on trans stuff. Again, this story landed so near that I can see the impact crater from where I sit.

I wrote the first draft of this story in less than 12 hours. I’ve found that the good ones are like that; they won’t let me sleep till I finish them! I was thrilled when Strange Horizons accepted it (after a rewrite).

I’ve actually got quite a bit of short fiction coming out. At least one more during the summer, probably two. Then another late in the year, or early in 2015. Take that, novels!

Would it be too stereotypical to say “ALL MY FEELS”? Because all my feels.
