Five New Stories

This week I finished my fifth story in a month, which is a surprising amount for me, and started a sixth. Four of them are now under submission, the other I'm still not quite happy with the final editing. The new story has started well, and joins two other partially-written stories from last year. They're mostly pretty short stories, but the advantage of that is getting a feeling of accomplishment from getting something finished. It's almost as good as getting something accepted for publication!

Austrian Story Sale

I'm very pleased that my Victorian SF adventure novelette The JourneyWithin has been accepted by Austrian magazine Visionarium, to be translated into German. It won't appear until next year, but it gives me something to look forward to. This will be my longest translated story to date, and my second in German. It was first published in the anthology Ancient New in 2013.
