A story accepted!
The Price will be published in the Winter 2009 issue of Mirror Dance, an online fantasy zine. It's an interesting zine, and some good stories there too.
Only a short time ago I was speaking about finally finding a title for my story about a sword, and finally came up with a title for this particular tale after an epic struggle of nearly two years to find the right title. I sent it out last week, after finding a title at last, and a few days later an e-mail arrived to advise The Price has been accepted!
What's it about? A magical sword. And what the cost of a magical sword can be.
I celebrated this evening with a small glass of red wine.
