My story in The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction

I don't know why this achievement is so hard for me to talk about. Or why writing the bio blurb requested by the editor/publisher nearly crashed my brain's hard drive. But I'm all better now.

The story was purchased in spring of 2009 and appeared in the May/June issue of F&SF. If any of my friends and family reading this want a copy of the magazine, let me know, and I'll send you one. The local bookstore ordered fifty copies and we've gone through almost all of them. One or two can still be found, and if we order another twenty copies then Gordon Van Gelder will have reached the break-even point right there in terms of making make back what he paid me.

  1. I am a couple of years behind in my reading, which is why I only today (9-9-2012) read "The Gypsy's Boy".

    The story is outstanding. At first I was disappointed by the ending, but I quickly realized there really could be no other ending.

    I have 2 and a half years worth of unread issues of F&SF, Analog and Asimov's that I am working my way through as time allows.

    I hope I'll be running across another story of yours in one of them.
