Happy, Happy, Happy

What a turn around... Seventy-two hours response time. Far removed from the old snail mail days. Building up my suspense here... Wait for it...

The short story 'The Shoes, the Giant and the Wizard of...', which I was hoping would be accepted for inclusion in Residential Aliens Silly Fantasy Anthology has been ACCEPTED!!! First acceptance of the year (she says in the hope that there will be more, more, more).

A few whoops, and jumps in the air, and an urge to run around the room only it's very, very, broom cupboard small...

And for anyone thinking of submitting a story. Here are the details you need.

What: Silly Fantasy Anthology
Word Count: 100 to 3000 words.
When: Submissions open December 1, 2007 through March 1, 2008

How: RTF or Word Doc attachment, Type "SUB [Title]" in the subject line.
Who's behind this: Crystalwizard & ResAliens(Residential Aliens is the Sponsoring Zine!)

What do we mean by silly fantasy? You silly person, have you never watched Monty Python and the Holy Grail? Make us fall off the chair and roll around on the floor, laughing.

Stories, bad puns and other sorts of silliness will be happily considered.
