Sale: Investments to Nature Futures

Friday, 11 July 2014

I'm thrilled to announce that Nature have bought my flash story Investments for their Futures slot.




Can't tell you how delighted I am to be appearing in the journal of science. It's a pro sale too, so another for the tally. In fact I think this sale qualifies me to become an active member of the Science Fiction Writers of America (SFWA) - despite me not being, you know of America.

I like Fridays. Fridays are good.

  1. That is very cool, Simon. When I was accepted into the Author's Guild I couldn't have been more thrilled than if I'd penned a bestseller. These kinds of literary achievements are as important as the writing, I think.

  2. Fabulous, Simon. Really great news. BTW if you're wanting to join SFWA as an active member, I'd make it quick. I hear the entry requirements are going to get a lot harder for short stories very soon.

  6. Way to go, amigo! Can't wait to read it. My SFWA membership is expiring next month. I'm planning to renew for one more year while I'm querying agents.
