Everyday Weirdness – “August”

At the beginning of the year, Thaumatrope creator Nathan Lilly launched Everyday Weirdness. It’s run a lot of good pieces – my recent favorite is C.J. Henderson’s “Closing Costs” – and my short story “August” is today’s publication.

Thaumatrope Fiction Relocation Project

Twitter ‘zine Thaumatrope has officially announced its Fiction Relocation Project, aiming to place its 140-character (That’s “character” as in letters, numbers, punctuation and stuff. Not “Holy crap there are 140 characters in this? What – is it The Stand SuperUncutDeluxe?”)stories into the empty nooks and crannies of convention program guides. Kind of a neat idea, particularly the notion of convention organizers being able to find local authors who’ve been published on the site. So: free publicity for the writers, and free publicity for the cons, which will get a mention on Thaumatrope, if I’m reading it right. Looks like Balticon will be the first participant.

I signed on, so my first Thaumatrope story is in the mix, and I’ve got a second scheduled for late this summer. I mean, given the sheer volume of fiction Tweets to choose from, I’m not counting on mine landing anywhere, but hey, slight odds beat zero odds any day.

Time to fight

Not surprisingly, I like this fiction tweet from Thaumatrope by J.R. Blackwell.
