Another Sale

Sam's Dot Publishing sent me this email earlier this morning:

I'm accepting both Winter and Adjoa for publication in one volume under the title Winter. Winter btw is excellent! Very well done. We're going to publish this as a trade paperback book. It probably won't be until February next, though.

There are two stories in question. Winter is a 16,000-word novelette, and is the story of a relativistic spacecraft returned to Earth during the next ice age. Adjoa refers to The Adjoa Gambit, a story that first appeared in issue #3 of Orson Scott Card's Intergalactic Medicine Show. The setting for this story is a reservation in Antarctia for Earth's natives (us) after aliens invaded and took over the world. You can see a preview of the story by following the first link above.

I think the two stories with the common thread of a cold environment work well together. More news on this volume when I have it.

Hey Rick, congrats. That's fantastic. I also see the word counter moved nearly 3000 words for Project Rigel Kentaurus. Looks like your back in the saddle :)

Hi JR. Nice to see you again. The counter is moving now that I worked my way out of a plot corner I painted myself into.
