Grimdark Magazine Issue #5 has gone on sale, which means my Fungi story “First They Came for the Pigs” gets a second kick at the can.
That cover looks great, and I’m very excited to be a part of this ToC.
And in an incredibly Winnipeg thing to happen, I have the pleasure of sharing this issue with friend and fellow Winnipeg author, David Annandale. Something about our freezing winters or summer mosquitoes must make grimdark an obvious niche for us.
The fine folks at Grimdark even made a trailer for the issue!
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.
