My story Dead Without Dying is now available to read for free in AE: The Canadian Science Fiction Review.
The story is illustrated by David Irvine (@gnarledbranch on Twitter). I hadn’t realised the editors were commissioning an illustration (though I probably should have – all the other stories up on the site have them), so it came as a very pleasant surprise. I think David’s really nailed the mood of the story’s opening.
This is the second short story I’ve sold at professional rates. Twice is coincidence. The third’ll be the clincher.
