For Fans of Astronomy and . . . Justin Timberlake?

While I'm not quite a fan of JT, I do like the song "SexyBack". Mostly because I'm silly.

Whether you like the song or not, today's shirtwoot is amazing. Change the lyrics, and my heart sings for joy, joy, joy!

Aaaand in other news: My Angry Steampunk Story is Back in Print

I was pretty grateful to have my Hallowe'en themed steampunk story "Autumn Jitters" selected for the current "Best of" volume of speculative fiction stories from Raven Electrick Ink. Spec-Tacular: Fantasy Favorites is now out for all you kindle readers. And you don't have to have a kindle to read it. There are plenty of apps available to read these items on your computer, phone and other electronic devices.

Here's the original press release (with a few shout outs):

Spec-tacular: Fantasy Favorites from Raven Electrick Ink showcases the fiction and poetry of 26 authors who have imagined the future of sports and games, the past of motion pictures, the alternatives to history, and the myths and legends of Halloween. From sleuthing in the realm of the Pumpkin King, to sailboarding at the universe's edge, from searching for submarine ghosts, to streaming the end of the world, Spec-tacular focuses a speculative lens on our popular preoccupations and pastimes.

This selection of editor and reviewer favorites from the sf, fantasy, and horror anthologies Sporty Spec (featuring a moving piece by Adam Nakama), Cinema Spec (featuring one of my stories), Retro Spec, and Jack-o'-Spec (featuring both Jason Ridler and myself) features the work of Paul Abbamondi, J. S. Bangs, Paul L. Bates, Greg Beatty, Robert Borski, Bruce Boston, Sarah Brandel, G. O. Clark, Neil Coghlan, Shannon Connor Winward, Lyn C. A.
