Ice cream and mud

First, the ice cream:  my story "A Capella," about an unusual music-maker, was picked up for publication by Arcane Magazine.  The editor, Mr. Nate Shumate, offered some particularly kind words and for those words and taking a chance on a rusted old axe such as myself, I thank him.  Arcane is a relatively new venture but is already generating some good buzz here (and he is interviewed here at Black Gate).  I wish Mr. Shumate and his partner, Sandy Peterson, the best of luck.

Now, the mud:  I read that my friends Carol and Sarah are wrapping up their e-zine, Moon Drenched Fables, and that the June issue will be their last one.  That’s too bad; it was never a large publication but featured some nice prose that had not found a home.  Sarah and Carol are wonderfully nice folk, so I read this with regret but hope that they move on to bigger and better things.

So you take the good with the bad.  An e-zine folds, another begins … a lot like the rest of life.
