Shout out

Odyssey buys "The First Day of Spring"

I'm happy to announce that Odyssey Magazine has bought  my flash fiction story, "The First Day of Spring."

Odyssey: Adventures in Science is a magazine for "young adventurers" aged 10-16.  Each monthly issue has a theme.  My story, which concerns the beginnings of prehistoric agriculture, will appear in the October issue, whose theme is, "Our Story: A Cast of Humans."

Odyssey is an SFWA "paying market," and marks my second such sale (the first being "Calibration," which appeared in Nature Physics a year ago).

I got a lot of slaps on the back from my fellow Clarion students (although there have been plenty more impressive achievements by many of them).
