“The Melody Lingers” is out!

At long last, my first fantasy story, “The Melody Lingers,” is finally available to read. Issue #39 of Galaxy’s Edge Magazine is now on sale:

Now, Galaxy’s Edge publishes a number of the stories from each issue on their website, and as it happens, “The Melody Lingers” is one of the stories they’ve put online this month, so you can read it right now for free at:

Although that’s only until the next issue comes out in September, so I certainly hope you’ll also buy the magazine and read all the other stories. Ordering links are on the website below the stories, or right here:

As you can see from the cover, I’m sharing the issue with some really big names, which is humbling. Remarkably, it’s the second time in the past year that I’ve shared a magazine with the legendary Gregory Benford, the first being the Sept/Oct 2018 Analog in which “…And He Built a Crooked Hub” appeared. And it’s my second time appearing in the same publication with Robert Jeschonek (after Star Trek: Voyager — Distant Shores). And Kevin J. Anderson provided a nice cover blurb quote for Only Superhuman, if that counts for anything.

And I just realized — this isn’t just my first fantasy story to get published, but my first story to be published in a print magazine other than Analog (unless you count the late, lamented Alternative Coordinates, which had a printable PDF version available). So that’s doubly cool.
