I sold one of those stories I mentioned the other day. Lightspeed Magazine has accepted “The Schrödinger War,” and it took about six hours from submission to acceptance. Wow, light speed indeed. I guess one of my fellow Hopeful Monsters wasn’t far off when he told me to “send it to Lightspeed…they should bite your hand off for it.” Fortunately I still have all my fingers.
“The Schrödinger War” was a story I struggled with for over a year. It’s probably the hardest story I’ve every finished, so it’s particularly gratifying to see it sell quickly and to such a wonderful market. This is my third sale to Lightspeed Magazine since the middle of 2011, so I almost feel like I’m becoming a bit of a regular. That’s pretty cool because I really like the magazine.
Sounds like the editors recognize your talent!
Eric, thanks for the kind words, and I hope you have a chance to read the story when it becomes available.
