I think this post should probably consist of nothing but exclamation points.
Growing up, I subscribed to Asimov’s and had a shelf full of back issues until I went to college.Â It was one of my favorite tickets to other worlds but I never imagined, back then, of actually appearing in its pages.Â But my story, “The Consciousness Problem” just Sold! To! Asimov’s!
Be happy there’s no audio component to this post because the squeel would destroy your eardrums.Â This is my first sale to one of the “Big Three” and I’m so pleased that it’s to Asimov’s.Â I wrote the story as part of the workshop run by Dean Wesley Smith and Kristine Kathryn Rusch, with special guest Sheila Williams.Â Clearly, I got invaluable feedback from that.
Could this day get any better?Â Oh yes, I think it can.Â I just have to wait for the polls to close.
