I was very thrilled to receive notification last night that “Heart of the Rail” has been accepted by Deborah Layne [wheatland_press] and Forrest Aguirre [experimeditor] for Polyphony 7. Polyphony is one of those anthologies that I’ve always looked at and said, “Maybe, one day, when I’m all growed up.”
This was the first story that I wrote post-VP, and I was hyper-aware of all my bad habits as I was writing it. It appears, however, that I managed to shake some of them off. Excellent.
[A shout out to ecgriffith for the title suggestion. Thanks, dude.]
