I returned page proofs of “Hoodoo” yesterday—it looks like this long-delayed story is getting closer to publication. The editor at Specutopia has been an pleasure to work with, and his editing suggestions were spot on. I really like it when an editor gets my story and can make solid suggestions that result in an improved final product (as opposed to an editor like this).
The table of contents has also been released for Specutopia‘s inaugural issue, and I recognize several of the writers (no other Hopeful Monsters, but a couple of writers I know from Codex). It looks like a good line-up, so make sure to check out this new speculative fiction publication when its debut issue hits the stands in July.
