Just had a very nice letter from the editor of the SciFi magazine,Jupiter.

He wants to publish my story, "Origin Story, A Day in the Life".   


I am beaming and doing the happy dance  ;D

Grats! One more down and a million more to write.

Good news indeed, Andrew.  Congratulations.

Congratulations, Andrew. Well deserved. Can't wait to read it.

I tried it Joe's way. He can tell you from some challenges we do, my twisted stories seldom fit what mag's are looking for.  :D
Oh, Grats on that latest sale too.

Thanks Skip. I love your stories, but it's like you say, sometimes a story just doesn't fit into most markets. Even great stories.
I've found a couple of markets that always ask for those weird stories that just can't be squeezed into a genre.
Wish I could remember their names.  :D
