Publication Day! at Fireside Magazine
It's a beautiful sunny November day here in Colorado, and it's also publication day for me at Fireside Magazine. My science fiction story "Catch a Fallen Star" is the featured short story of the month. The story takes place on a planet that crosses orbits with an asteroid belt. During the time of the Pass, no one is allowed above ground. But when a clever boy breaks curfew, it's up to one of the planet's "rat catchers" to bring him in, while meteors are falling from the sky. If you're not already a Fireside subscriber, you can buy the individual issue or a subscription for the whole year. It's a good deal for a lot of great fiction every month, and, of course, you get to read my story.
In related writing news, Diabolical Plots has posted their list of the Top 10 podcasts at Every Day Fiction, and my story "The Spinners," read by the wonderful Folly Blaine, comes in at No. 4.
