Slow Stampede sold to Asimov's
Ladies and Gents, I give you the storkiphant!
Ok, I'll admit. Slow Stampede is Science Fiction, not fantasy, so the storkiphants' legs are thicker and there's some sort of biological explanation for the weirdness, but that came after I started to write about them. Because they're just awesome. Because Daaaali rocks.
Oh, and there are also some merpeople in the story, but Daaali didn't get around to drawing any pictures of them. Sorry.
Asimov's seems to agree with me because they've bought the story. This is my second sale to Asimov's and I'm all fluttery inside.
"Slow Stampede" went through a long series of revisions which involved fellow writers, co-opted friends, useful rejections and much randomness. My sincere thanks to everyone who helped me get this one off the ground.
Special thanks to Sean Markey who read the last version, printed it out and mailed it for me from the US.
