Story Sale

Posted in Writing tagged at 8:11 am by Van Aaron Hughes

I’m delighted to report that my novelette “The Body Pirate” has sold to The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction.

F&SF has been one of the top magazines in the field since 1949, so it is a great honor to appear again in its pages. This is my 10th story sale, 5th sale to a professional market, and 2nd sale to F&SF, all numbers I never would have expected to reach when I started this writing thing.

“The Body Pirate” is my weirdest piece yet, with formatting oddities and lots of invented pronouns, so I’m very happy editor Gordon Van Gelder was willing to take a chance on it. I expect the story will appear in an issue early in 2015.

    Hi! I absolutely loved “The Body Pirate.” Weird, unusual, and entirely gripping.
    Kudos to you. Thanks for writing 🙂

  2. Thanks for that, Standback, I appreciate it!

    And thanks also for mentioning the story at CiaraCat. I’m very honored to appear on that list with so many outstanding authors.
