I am trying to write my novel... Honest

I just found the following courtesy of HellNotes, and I thought it would be of interest to a few of you.

PRESS RELEASE


Apex Magazine is delighted to announce that the April issue will be a special one devoted to the concept of how the future will remember the past, and edited by award-winning writer and Apex author Michael A. Burstein.

“Ever since we published Michael’s collection I Remember the Future, we’ve been hoping that Michael could find the time to edit an issue,” said Jason Sizemore, publisher and editor-in-chief of Apex Magazine. “Michael’s looking for stories that evoke the same themes that tie his own stories together, such as the slipperiness of history and the dangers of forgetting the past.”

Burstein will be reading for this special issue of Apex Magazine from January 15th until March 15th. He said, “I want to thank Apex for this opportunity to edit an issue of the magazine. I’m looking forward to seeing the stories come in, and I’m hoping for some powerful ones that will stay with me for a long time.”


More details can be found on the Apex Magazine webpage.

I am not even attempting to write until this afternoon. That said, the April issue should be an interesting one. I need to order that book to add to my ever growing list.

I am sticking with my novel and discovering willpower that I never knew I had.

Oui, it is tempting to write some shorts, though! Too many interesting themes running around.

Jamie - If I buy any more books/mags/anthos (which of course I will) I'll be able to start my own library.

Bobbie - Go you. Take no notice of my poisoned apple. ;)

Aaron - You... can... do... it...
