Preparing "This Moment, and the Times Before" to submit to the Potlatch convention (http://www.potlatch-sf.org) for their Writers Workshop. It's due Feb 9, and I finally have the time for some minor adjustments before the convention. I think this story has real potential, so I'm looking forward to getting it into the Workshop and seeing what feedback I get. Potlatch is a small literary convention (I went to it in SF in 2005), so it's always fun.
The Book of Honor at Potlatch is "Dimensions of Sheckley", a collection of excerpts from novels by Robert Sheckley. I ordered the book, along with "Masque of Manana", a collection of short stories, from NESFA (start at http://www.potlatch-sf.org/boh.php).
They might not come before the convention so I checked out "Is THAT What People Do?", another collection of short stories. So far I'm really enjoying Sheckley's satirical stories, especially "The Robot Who Looked Like Me". It's a marvelous story about a time-challenged man who decides to outsource his romance, with a nice ending and thoughtful final twist. It's as relevant now (if not more so) than it was when first published in 1973. Highly recommended.
