An Honorable Mention for “Big Diehl”
My short, “Big Diehl,” received an honorable mention in Ellen Datlow’s Best Horror of the Year (Vol. 1, Night Shade publications). First time I’ve received an honorable anything from anybody with regard to my writing. The short appeared in the November 2008 edition of the ezine, Nossa Morte is and continues to be a quality ezine, picky about what they publish. They’re a PAYING market besides.
May bask in this little achievement for a while…white wine, a few puffs on a cigar.
NOTE: The short, “Big Diehl,” that appeared in Nossa Mortre, provided the basis for the character, Big Diehl, who appears in a novella over at MLR Press. The novella and the short share the same title and main character, but are distinctly different in content.
