The Return

Once upon a time a story appeared in a chapbook all of its own and its author, back then in disguise as her minion Catherine J Gardner, was rather excited about the event. It was the first time her name and only her name had appeared on a book and she never thought that would happen ever...like ever ever...and she still can't believe that it has happened again on four occasions. Of course, she is convinced that is that and she should hug her little books to her chest and never expect any more. Except in her dreams...

...because it never hurts to dream.

Anyway, she loved the story of Olive Lemon so much that she typed it up at the end of last year with the intention of sending it out into the world again as a reprint, only she never did until someone awesome invited her to write something for a magazine and she dared to ask if they'd read Olive's tale, thus...

Joe Pulver read and accepted The Sour Aftertaste of Olive Lemon for Phantasmagorium of which he has recently taken over editorial duties from Laird Barron. It will appear in print this May along with work from Cody Goodfellow, Ann K Schwader, Edward Morris and Michael Cisco.

Excited...some.

That's my third acceptance this month.
