Story up at Daily Science Fiction - Publishometer Hits 250!

Monday, 22 July 2013

My flash story Demonic Summoning, Ratings and Reviews is published by pro SF and fantasy 'zine Daily Science Fiction today. It gets emailed out to subscribers initially and will then appear on their web site in a week's time. And, since subscription is free, why not sign up now if you haven't already? I love my daily DSF email.


This story also sees me hitting the 250 publication landmark:

220 works + 30 reprints = 250 publications:

Novels2
Short story collections4
Novellas/novelettes9+ 3 reprints
Short Stories34+ 18 reprints
Flash stories27+ 5 reprints
Micro stories78
Poems60+ 4 reprints
Audiobooks/podcasts6





It's been a long journey getting to 250 - but I remember clearly the thrill of that very first publication (a poem, as it happens), and each subsequent success has been just as sweet.

Hmm, I wonder if 500 is possible...

  4. Your story in DSF today is hilarious, great stuff! Although I would have figured Windows 8 would be Satan's favorite entry into our world...

  6. You're right. I *should* sign up for DSF. I haven't so far because I worry that would just be one more thing I didn't have time to read everyday, but... what the hell, right?

    Also? Good luck on reaching 500. I'm cheering for you.
