I'm in Bewildering Stories Issue 340

Well, I'm here again, pleased to announce that my story SIRENUM SCOPULI in Bewildering Stories is now up.

I have to say, as a point of interest, that I am pleasantly surprised at how the managing editor, Don Webb, introduces the new contributors -- this time me. It's a very thoughtful thing to do, and by a way of thanks it makes me want to submit more stories to him. :) Seriously though, I do think it's a very nice touch.

In addition, I have also found that at the bottom of my story is a link to Issue 340 challenges; ideas formulated as they passed through the editor's mind while he read and formatted the text for publication. These can be used in many ways to inspire the readers to send in their ideas, and comments. Some challenges even resemble an exercise from a writers workshop, others can be seen as a prompt or an expression of the editor's concept of a Bewildering Story. Another great idea, I say! And my story is mentioned there, too!

OK, enough of the shameless self-promotion - I'm just a little bit excited, as I am sure you will understand.


  1. Beautifully written! Like BS said, it is quite unusual to have a epistolary story, and the format works well.
    It was nice how they introduced you, wasn't it?
    And I noticed Oonah in there as well!

    I have my first story in BS next week!

  2. Thanks Jen!

    Yes it was lovely the way they introduced me. I will look out for you there!
