On the side of a hill in the deep forest green, tracing a sparrow on snow-crested ground,
blankets and bedclothes the child of the mountain sleeps unaware of the clarion call.
On the side of a hill, a sprinkling of leaves washes the grave with silvery tears,
a soldier cleans and polishes a gun.
War bellows, blazing in scarlet battalions, generals order their soldiers to kill
and to fight for a cause they've long ago forgotten

Woohoo! You Rock, Ken McConnell!

Sometimes commentor and fellow Whateverian (Whateverite? Anyway, I think that's where I saw you first and linked to your blog) Ken McConnell has made his first professional sale! You all should go and congratulate him. Woohoo! Good job! I 'm sure this will be only the first in a long string of sales.

Left my calling card at Mr. McConnell's place, via the you. Told him my Matty & and the Mandroid story ("The Clone Wrangler's Bride") should be up there at SpaceWesterns about Dec. 23rd. I look forward to Mr. McConnell's story. And may I state for the record, SpaceWesterns editor Nathan E. Lily is a pleasure to deal with?

I remember you syaing you had a sale there. Also they interviewed one of my fav Tor Editors, David Hartwell, this past summer (which is where I think I first heard of them). There's a little buzz about them, so good things.
