I submitted a story to an upcoming anthology called Fish, to be published by Dagan Books (the same publisher who is producing IN SITU with my story “Hoodoo”). My story didn’t make the cut, which is always disappointing, but I saw the table of contents for Fish today and it has an impressive list of writers, including Ken Liu, Cat Rambo, and several other recognizable names. Most importantly, however, fellow Hopefull Monster, Tracie McBride’s story “The Touch of Taniwha” will be included. This is a wonderful piece that is structurally complex (multiple point-of-views) and rich with Moari folklore. If Tracie’s story is any indication of the overall quality, I recommend you pick up a copy of Fish when it comes out.
No Fish For Me

At least you sent one in, I just couldn’t think of anything to say about ‘Fish’.
As a marine biologist, I had to submit something! I like the story that I came up with; I just wish I had come up with something less run-of-the-mill. But I almost always say that after a rejection.
