I suppose I should take a moment to note that the Midwinter Fae (A Procession of Faeries – 2) anthology put together by Jamie Ferguson is now available in print! Given the other writers on its table of contents, I was quite proud to have my story “First Rays of New Sun” appear in its e-pages, and am doubly thrilled to be able to say you can get it on real live paper.
So, yeah, we’re still close to mid-winter, right? Go on an check it out!
