Six years ago, I published a chapter from an unfinished fantasy novel in my alma mater’s student literary journal. It won the University’s Best in Fiction award that year. Today, I made my debut as a professional fiction author.
“Our Fate, Told in Photons” is available to read in Clarkesworld no. 177, along with stories from Nancy Kress, Robert Reed, Suzanne Palmer, Jiang Bo (trans. Andy Dudak), Yukimi Ogawa, and Cristina Jurado (trans. Sue Burke). You can read the issue online for free, but please consider purchasing an issue or subscription to help keep pro markets like Clarkesworld open.
We’ve come a long way, baby. Who knows where we’ll be in six more years?
