The Winter 2008 issue of Space and Time Magazine is out. It features my story “Rite of Passage.” Hunt down a copy and let me know what you think.

This is a sweet coup for me because this was a magazine I really wanted to appear in. A rejection from this magazine was one of my “ah hah” moments as a writer. It was the first time an editor took the time to give me a personalized rejection (hand-written, no less). Despite the actual rejection, the note let me know that I was on the right track in my writing. The next time I bumped into Gerard Houarner, I even thanked him for it. (Always what an editor is expecting. Be sure to do that often. It’s never too awkward.) Anyway, that was 2003.
