August Asimov’s is out with my story!

MeAsimov-150x150Forgive me for squeeing all over myself but I’ve been reading Asimov’s since I was a teen and I just had just had the dream experience. I went into the bookstore and bought a copy of the magazine with my name on the cover. My name. On the cover of Asimov’s. It’s my first sale to the magazine, which is cool enough but didn’t know until I went in that I’d made the cover.

And then! I got home tonight and Lois Tilton at IROSF reviewed the August Asimov’s today. She gave my story, “The Consciousness Problem” a RECOMMENDED.

This is a poignant and sensitive look at problems of identity and relationships, as well as scientific ethics. Elise’s mental lapses are particularly well done. The characters have clearly not thought through the implications of their project.

Swooning. I’m swooning here.

  1. That’s wonderful! Hopefully we can find a copy around here this weekend ๐Ÿ™‚


  2. Yay! I’m so happy for you. I read it some time ago and loved it! Great going ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Congratulations on the sale and the good review.

    I enjoyed “The Consciousness Problem” thoroughly. It is beautifully written. That all the little details mattered and built up to show the central relationships’ intense intimacy was exquisite.

    I’m looking forward to your workshop at Readercon this weekend on giving effective readings. (BTW, the description at the website says that it’s a 90 minute workshop. The schedule grid they put up this weekend implies that it’s only 60 minutes?)

    1. Thank you, John!

      They had to change the workshop length to make the schedule work, so it’s only 60 minutes. I think they posted the description long before they put the schedule up. I’ll drop the organizers a note to let them know about the discrepancy.
