My story "Misbegotten" (see the sidebar) appears on the 2013 Locus Recommended Reading List. It is in truth an homage to Flannery O'Connor's "Temple of the Holy Ghost," which is in itself (it seems to me) an homage to the Dumb Ox.
If you like that story, then you may consider voting for it in the Locus Poll and Survey. The deadline is April 15. You might also consider casting a vote for Beneath Ceaseless Skies, where I am honored to have my stories appear. What other pro journal devotes itself so exclusively and successfully to literary adventure fantasy?
