My story is up on Bewildering Stories this morning as part of issue 644!! Yay!
Plenty of Fish is a story about a 1920s-ish alternate universe where a school of fish comes out of the sky once a year and children at an institute are taught to catch one. It’s about failure and expectation, and Brian calls it “heartbreaking.”
The other stuff in the issue is CRAZY good, too. I’m proud to be part of this talented group. Go check it out!
I had a whole other blog post planned for this morning, but I had to pause and tell you all the great news I received on Sunday. Are you ready? Here it is:
My story, Plenty Of Fish, was accepted by Bewildering Stories! (!!!) http://www.bewilderingstories.com/
It’s set in a 1920s-ish alternate universe where clouds of fish come from the sky each summer. Small, gifted Hero attends an institute to learn how to catch one.
I’m still waiting on the official date of publication and all, but it will definitely appear in the near future. I’ve been shopping this story for months now, and it’s something I’m really proud of. So proud, I was sure it would find a home eventually. Bewildering Stories has extended it a warm welcome. I’m thrilled to be among the ranks of their talented writers. Thanks, guys!
I will shout it all from the rooftop so you can check it out when I have an official date to report. Stay tuned…
UPDATE: Story drop date is November 16th. Yay!
My Story is up on the Dapper Press Lounge! You should go check it out. Seriously: http://www.dapperpress.com/lounge. And then you, too, can know what the trees have to say.
There is also this lovely link in which I answer a series of questions about myself and my fears http://www.dapperpress.com/blog/2014/10/13/guest-post-haunted-lounge-author-casey-hamilton. What can I say? I’m all over the internet today.
I’m super proud of this one. Thanks for checking it out! 🙂
This is a VERY quick post just to say that today I’m a published writer! My Senior Thesis – a 44 page research project on Deaf films made between 1913 and 1920 – was just published in Chapman’s online history journal, Voces Novae. I basically argue that although the films were made to preserve Sign Language, they also inadvertently preserved Deaf Culture. If you’re into that sort of thing, or just want to ogle my name a little, here’s the link: http://journals.chapman.edu/ojs/index.php/VocesNovae/issue/current. I’M SUPER EXCITED ABOUT IT!! (If you couldn’t already tell…)
