I just received word from the ever-charming Sandra Ruttan that my short story A Simple Kindness has been accepted to appear in the winter issue of Spinetingler Magazine, due out January 2008. The issue is being guest-edited by Jack Getze, so thanks to Jack and Sandra both. I've long been an admirer of Spinetingler, and I couldn't have asked for a better home for my story.
Oh, and Spinetingler is a Canadian publication, which means I've officially gone international. Now I'm no mathematician, but it stands to reason I've just accomplished 1/3 of my ultimate goal of heading up an international crime syndicate.
