I suppose I can share this now, as the contract is signed (and I’ve been paid).
Sold my first short story reprint!
The story in question is “First They Came for the Pigs” originally included in the Innsmouth Free Press anthology, Fungi, edited by Silvia Moreno-Garcia and Orrin Grey, it’ll be appearing in Grimdark Magazine in the near future. Super stoked about this!
I also came home from work to this as a congratulations the day they made the offer:
(“First They Came for the Pigs” features people-eating mushrooms by-the-by.)
Thanks Silvia and Orrin for choosing the story in the first place (and for commissioning that amazing cover that made me want to write about mushrooms even if I’ll never eat them) and to Grimdark for giving this one another moment in the sun.
