Ichiko short story - SOLD

>> Sunday, June 18, 2006

Despite my predictions to the contrary in an earlier blog, my short story "To Honor Ichiko and Defend Japan" has been accepted by Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine! I'm both surprised and thrilled, as this is a premier mystery magazine, available in all the major chain bookstores and many more independents. I don't know the month it'll come out yet, but I'm told it will see print some time next summer (2007). At least that's a shorter time than it takes a novel to come out!

This story was rejected by AHMM's sister publication, Ellery Queen's Mystery Magazine, as I blogged in yet an earlier post. You can read the sordid details of the story's origins in this original post, where I discussed not wanting to let the world of Samurai Shortstop go.

I'll be sure to let you know what month the story runs when I find out!
