Story in October 2007 issue of Realms of Fantasy

One of my short stories, "Honest Man," is in the current issue of Realms of Fantasy. (Which is the October issue. Even though it came out earlier in August.) I wrote this story in honor of my grandmother's 80th birthday; while the events of the story are fictional, the main character is explicitly based on my grandmother, Iris, and various members of her family (including my grandfather, my mother, and my great-aunt) are mentioned or have brief appearances.

Writing that story was really fun -- I actually lost track of time while I was writing it because I was enjoying myself so much, and realized suddenly that I was going to be late picking up my kid at preschool.

The story is wonderful. I loved it when I read it, and found myself thinking about all day yesterday.

I'll definitely check it out. I just applied for a ROF subscription...if it doesn't come in the next week or so I'll scurryt to the local bookstore and pick one up. :)
