I’m pleased to announce that Plasma Frequency has accepted my story “Comes the Piper.” This is my first sale of 2014, and it feels good to sell one after a lengthy dry spell. “Comes the Piper” is a very different story for me. It’s dark, dark, dark, and then a little darker. I would call it a horror (although maybe it’s only horrific), but I don’t know if people who write horror would agree. It’s the closest thing to horror I’ve ever written, and I must confess it left my psyche a little scarred. The story still gives me a bit of a shiver to think about it.
So, yeah, I’m happy it’s finally found a home, even if I wonder if I should have let out the door. What would the neighbors think? Ah, who cares what they think. I hope you’ll check it out when it comes available later this year, and I hope it gives you as much a chill as it gave me.
