Interview with Jason Beam
I shouldn’t really blog about this until I’ve crossed the t’s and dotted the i’s, but I’m feeling reckless!
After no little time on the market my short story Horizon has found a home at the new UK print ‘zine Murky Depths. No idea when it will see the light of day yet but will put more details up whe I have them.
Two rejections today. One from Fantasy magazine saying no to ‘Rings’, after a re-write and retitle to ‘My Lovesick Zombie Boyband’. I like the re-write however so it was worth doing. Horizon was also rejected for Nemonymous 8, which makes rejection number ten for that story. I maintain faith in it though even after some harsh criticism and will find a home for it yet.
Following Heinlein’s law number four, both stories have gone straight back on the market. ‘MLZB’, formerley ‘Rings’ is now with Anne Vandermeer at Weird Tales (my second attempt to break into that market) and Horizon goes to the team at Ideomancer. All available appendages crossed.
