A Little Writing News

Couple more short stories have made safe landings at magazines. “The Dream Curator,” which some of you might have seen me read at KGB a while back, will appear in Postscripts sometime next year, and “Dragon’s Teeth,” involving some of the same characters from “Wizard’s Six,” is coming from F&SF. This is the first time I’ve ever written a second story using the same characters. It felt strange, but I’d been thinking about this one for a long time, and ran out of reasons not to do it. Now I’ve got two more in mind, at the end of which there might be something like a long novella or short novel. Seems odd to think of it.

Also I just finished drafting a chapter on urban fantasy for Modern Literary Fantasy, a Cambridge UP book edited by Edward James and Farah Mendlesohn. Not sure when it’s coming out, but I hadn’t written a scholarly piece in a long time, and once I shook the rust off it felt good. I might just do it again. In fact, I started thinking about expanding the article into a book, which would let me talk about a whole lot of books that I couldn’t get to in a 5000-word article.
