My story “Dance of the Kawkawroons” is featured in the March 2010 issue of Interzone (#227) , the first time I’ve appeared in back-to-back issues of the popular British publication.  The magazine is being distributed in the U.S.,  including Barnes and Noble, by its new distributor.

I’m particularly proud of this story, the first draft of which I wrote during a writing retreat with Altered Fluid last year.    It was inspired by the sleep cycles of albatrosses, which I learned about during a trip to the Galapagos Islands in 2008.

I’m off to this year’s Fluidian retreat–up at Woodstock–on Thursday.  (Going without television for 4 1/2 days will be a challenge.  Hopefully I’ll be able to retain my sanity and not harm anyone.)  I’m hoping it proves to be as productive as last year’s.
