Today, it’s official. My first appearance on the cover of a professional science fiction magazine. I’m singing, “On the Cover of the Rolling Stone!”
This issue of Future Science Fiction Digest has two themes: a lunar theme in recognition of the 50th anniversary of the first Moon landing; and an artificial intelligence theme. When I got wind of this, I knew I had the perfect fit–I had a story with both! I queried the editor, he agreed to look at it, and the rest is history! “Super-Duper Moongirl and the Amazing Moon Dawdler” was published today in Issue 3 of this international SF magazine. It’s a watershed moment for any writer to be listed on the cover, and this story has granted me two watershed moments! It’s not only my first cover, it’s a reprint of my award-winning story from Writers of the Future, Volume 35.
And an added bonus! The editor hired me to narrate and produce the story as a podcast. Check out my Podcast header and click on the link and I’ll read you this story about a disabled girl on the Moon and her robodog life support unit that protects her!
