Vroom, vroom

Got an e-mail this morning from Terry Martin, Managing Editor at Murky Depths, the British quarterly print anthology. He said I hit his "weak spot" with Nosing with the Four-Stroke Kid, and he offered me a contract for publication.

The story is scifi/horror flash that involves dirt bikes and weird pickup lines; I wrote it and it creeps me out. It's my tenth sale since June (nine pieces of fiction and a poem); not a lot compared to other writers I know, but still a big deal for me.

If it makes it into the first-quarter 2009 issue, it would be a great birthday present.

Copies of the magazine can be purchased at Murky Depths I'll put out a reminder when the issue is out.
