Father Fayad's Curious Compatibility Projector by Mike Duran
You'll notice, I'm pulling up the rear. What you may not notice is the good company I'm with. For instance, Ruth Nestvold has had stories shortlisted for the Tiptree award and been nominated for the Sturgeon award, and Lisa Mantchev is on editorial staff with Shimmer and her stories have appeared in Strange Horizons, one of my all-time favorite sci-fi mags.
I love dabbling in speculative fiction (sci-fi, to the non-initiates), and Father Fayad's Curious Compatibility Projector fits the bill. It ranks up there as one of the most peculiar titles I've ever penned (The Jagged Hole in Ferrymoor Two being a close second). Anyway, I'm pretty stoked. It's my second story in actual print (as opposed to e-zine) and second-best paying writing gig to date. In fact, I got paid in British pounds. Cheerio!
Thanks to Forgotten Worlds and to you good folks who are rushing over there (after leaving a comment here, of course) to purchase a copy.
