Why, Yes, I Have a New Short Story Coming

A few sharp-eyed folks caught the a notice over at the Subterranean Press site, announcing that SubPress had bought a story from me.

Is it true? Yes, it’s true.

What’s it about? I won’t tell you. You’ll have to wait until it’s out.

When will it be out? As the SubPress announcement notes, “sooner than you think.”

Will you enjoy it? Oh, I think so.

So stay tuned.

  1. We should start a pool on when we think it will come out. (I assume John is only guaranteeing that it’ll be out sooner than the median entry, not that it’ll be out before every entry.)

    I’ll take 3:26 p.m.

  2. I’ll take Sunday!
    So, how does this work, do I have to pay once for each available minite on Sunday?
    Thing is, over here we change to GMT Sunday morning; will I be getting billed for the full 25 hours?

  5. He says no yogurt or bacon, but that doesn’t mean other dairy or pork products aren’t involved. Hmmmm…. could it be about a sentient ham and cheese sandwich traveling through time to save the future?

  6. Semi-related question I was thinking about the other day…

    Last time I heard about a Scalzi short story it was a mention of ‘Questions for a Soldier’, for which I was WAY too late to snag a copy on Subterranean Press.
    (but which, I guess you’d be happy to know, starts at $148 used on Amazon)

    I guess the question is, what good does it do you, as an author, to have a story that sold it’s 600 copies and is now gone, and can’t be read, or bought, by fans?

    Is there a benefit to you? Aside from the 600 fans being able to say ‘nanner nanner” to the rest of us?
