My short story “The Circus” has been sitting on my hard drive longer than anything else I’ve written. It’s undergone two major rewrites, been rejected by horror mags as too light and fantasy mags as too dark. Last fall, it was accepted by a magazine that went belly up before it could publish the story.
So, after more than a year of shopping around “The Circus,” I’m happy to report Necrotic Tissue will feature the story in its January 2010 issue. It will be my second publication in Necrotic Tissue, and the editors have always been a pleasure to deal with. They respond in a timely manner, they’re friendly and in addition to paying you for your work, they give ya a free t-shirt. I’ll wear it with pride.
