The editor/publisher, Alvin Mullen, is shooting for publication in Jan/Feb 2018.Those I owe thanks: Rob Graves (who, among other things, corrected my first attempt at writing in British English); Jon Paradise (even though you thought my ending was twee, making you one of the very few people on this planet who has ever told me I wasn’t being dark enough 🙂 ); Steve Brady; Gene Spears; Gregor Hartmann; and Zvi Zaks. And the rest of this wonderful community, as I would never have gone from knowing absolutely nothing about writing fiction to having actual sales without the help of OWW.”
