Thoughts in Passing
Oops! I've had so much on my plate lately that I completely blanked on the last Aswiebe's Market List update, so this is a double shot.

What I've been up to lately, writing-wise:

My little epic fantasy novella is out in the world! The Unkindness of Ravens is an epic fantasy story about trickster gods and favors owed. Initial reviews on Goodreads are very positive. Yay! Go read the long excerpt on my website.

Featured Market

The End of Our World anthology is seeking thoughtful SF themed to climate catastrophe and end of the world. Due 8/31/2018!

Contemporary warnings of impending doom, the rapidly approaching end of our overdeveloped and unsustainable world, are based on reality and science, on cold, hard facts, matters of projection rather than prediction. And we are already seeing the end beginning. The signs are everywhere: environmentally and socially (check our fact sheet for details). We are going down, and most of us know, perhaps not consciously, not clearly spelled out, but we know, deep inside, that we are going down, in spite of all the comforting lies told by those who are profiting from our downfall and want us to go meekly.

This contest is meant to raise people's awareness of what is happening to our (natural) world right now and what this may mean for the near future. We are looking for short stories dealing with the many existential issues facing us. No nonsense, no wild, impossible fantasies but strong, intelligent stories, based on facts, cautionary tales, speculative, plausible and thought-provoking.

Basics: themed science fiction, 1,500-3,000 words, reprints okay, $1,000 prize. Due 8/31/2018. Guidelines:
