Twist of Coil in Analog Blog

Twist of Coil in Analog

I had to put in Analog blog – it rhymed. I’m rhyming because I’m excited like green eggs and ham, oh yes I am! My story ‘Twist of Coil’ is in the December 2014 issue of Analog Science Fiction and Fact. My author’s copies came in the mail, and I ripped open the package like it was the best Christmas gift ever (because it is!).

CXXXIV is 134

There on page 72, in Volume CXXXIV No. 12, is my story. It’s so amazing to see my name and work featured in such an esteemed magazine. I couldn’t be more honored. My story is in the hallowed pages of the great granddaddy of science fiction magazines. Woohoo!

Astound5006A Little Analog History Goes a Long Way

Analog started out back in 1930 and has had a few name changes along the way such as Astounding (which it still is J). On Asimov’s Science Fiction webpage, Analog is listed as “the longest-running (almost)-continuously published science fiction magazine in the world.”

Sci-Fi Big Times

Big names in science fiction like Isaac Asimov, Robert A. Heinlein, Poul Anderson and Spider Robinson have had their stories in Analog. This magazine was also the first to print classics like Frank Herbert’s Dune and Dragonflight by Anne McCaffrey. To be associated with such a well-established science-fiction publication is such an amazing privilege. This December issue is definitely Christmas come early for me.
