Two pieces of very good news

I’m not going to recriminate myself for not posting in awhile. I’ve done it before, it’ll happen again, and there are only so many times I can apologize and say I won’t do it again before I just start sounding hollow. So, there.

But, I do have some good news! I’m published! My short story, “Dark Running,” has been published in the September issue of Ray Gun Revival. If you want to read the story, please go HERE. I am thrilled to be part of their magazine, and I hope that they’ll want to publish more of my work in the future. I’m happy happy happy.

And, to make life even sweeter, I’ve also been notified that ”Dark Running” has won First Place in the FenCon V short story contest. FenCon is a science fiction and fantasy convention held in Dallas, and this is their fourth year to hold the competition. I entered the competition with no expectations whatsoever, so it was a real treat to see that it won, and First Place no less. w00t!

Anyway, things are going well for me right now, and I’m going to do everything I can to keep that going. Take care yourself, and come back!

  1. Hi Justin,

    I wrote the story that got second place at Fencon V. Did you attend the convention? I didn’t, and didn’t find out that I’d placed until afterwards, when I asked a friend who’d gone to Fencon. Congratulations on the win, and especially on getting the story published in Ray Gun Revival.
    Cheers!
