If you haven't read it yet, now is the time. It is the third story in a series of four, and my favorite. I'm glad that someone else shares my opinion! If you would like to access the story, it is available here: http://cynicmag.com/bestof.asp?articleid=2520
Other than that, I have a short story that has come out in NVF Issue 2#. It is entitled "Life After the Undead." If you'd like to check it out, it is available here:
So far, 2009 is looking good! My novel is supposed to be coming out soon, but my publisher has been ill, so I don't have an exact date. I will keep you informed!
