Yes, a little tale I wrote, "A Night Encounter in Confederate Virginia", was accepted for a coming anthology. Smile

The antho's title is Dark Distortions I - it'll be out next month.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

Good for you my friend! Is this a period story as the title suggests?

I would very much like to read it.

Thanks, Gus - and yep, it is a period story.

Twas one of those things where I came across this little factoid and said "there's got to be a story in this". It only took a couple of years to do it right, but it got done at last. Even better, people liked it.

Congratulations... I'm an amateur science fiction writer myself, and I'd probably be ecstatic if I got something published in a professional anthology like this. Rock!

Any chance I can get a read of this Az? Or at least let me know when the publication is available?

Seriously, I love period horror.

Unless it's Anne Rice.

The OFCS is creating a book of movie essays and I'm contributing two.
One on "Hard Candy," the other on "12 Angry Men."

Congratulations to you too. Are your essays available for reading? Are they on Film Threat?

I'm still polishing them for the September deadline, and no they're for the book exclusively. Thanks!

You'll give info on the book then, when and where?

I'm really proud of you guys. And, I admit, a little envious.

Thanks, everybody.

Congrats to you too, Terminal! What's OFCS, if I may ask?

Gus - I wouldn't mind letting you have a read; how should we work that out?

Oh, and if anyone's interested, this is the first review of the antho:
