Short Story Sale: Black Fragmentaria to Postscripts quarterly

Just letting you know that I recently had a short story accepted by Pete Crowther for his quarterly anthology, Postscripts, scheduled to appear in the winter 2009 issue. I regard this as a bit of a personal milestone as Postscripts is a seriously good magazine/anthology which has showcased some of the field’s best writers. The fact that it pays is another plus factor, too!

The story is entitled Black Fragmentaria and is one of my alternative Scotland/empire tales, kinda steampunkish, entwined with intrigue and power politics, sprinkled with dark science and the warped consequences of its misuse. Hope it stands up along with that issue’s other stories.

Here’s the link to Postscripts:
