Todd Wheeler is having a party which hopefully will be more than just in his mind for the launch of the anthology Sporty Spec: Games of the Fantastic. Where he has a story published. Yippie! If you in the near Bostonian area, check him out.
Also published in the same antho, but celebrating other things, Camille, is celebrating getting into Courting Morpheous being put out by Apex (which has gained a lot of creed in my submission book). She also won an Excellence in Writing award for one of her reviews at Green Man.
Also, Tobias Buckell just slogged through edits for Sly Mongoose, which wins my award for best use of the phrase, "This is going to hurt" in a reading for this year. Tobias read parts from SM at Confluence this year. Let me just say it sounds exciting. It'll be on my gift list for next year.
