Well, I’ve done a third pass on my spiders, and they are now neatly packaged up and ready to go to F&SF in tomorrow’s mail (aka, I’m setting them free…hehe). That’s one down and two to go for the submission challenge (3 subs in Sept). Submission number two is in pretty good shape, and it’ll probably go to WotF. Submission number three…*shrug* There’s still a fair amount of time left, I’m sure something will come to me :)
Thanks to the excellent recommendations of my Clarion classmates, I’ve been reading tons of great SF lately (in reverse chronological order): Marooned in Realtime by Vernor Vinge, Forever War by Joe Haldemann, Perdido Street Station by China Mieville, Air by Geoff Ryman, and Spin by Robert Charles Wilson. Next up is The Snow Queen, by Joan Vinge.
