After staring for a month at Fantasy Magazine's official site, by way of mekkavandexter sending me towards oldcharliebrown, I finally know what the cover of the issue I'll be in looks like (here) and when it's probably going to come out (September). It didn't turn out to be a blind dwarf with a hard-on on my cover, and the girl in question doesn't seem to be caught in mid-orgasm -- it's an interesting theme, actually. Why are Fantasy Magazine's covers mostly of girls?

And, in a break from tradition, my full name will be printed with my story. I wrote to oldcharliebrown asking if my name would appear in full, since he introduced my name in full when he posted about Issue 4, wondering if initials could be used instead. Sean asked me for my reasons, and quite frankly, I couldn't think of one anymore. It used to be a whole bunch of things, a whole lot of very old fears about my family finding out about what I wrote (they did over time, they've only just begun reading my work, and as far as I know, they've even liked it), a morbid fear that someone out there would take offence at what I wrote about my culture or those odd bits of religion I keep throwing into the mix without the buffer of having space in between. A whole lot of fears about me and other people. Like, what if they actually turned out to be nice? :)

So, my name appears with my story. I shouldn't be making a big deal out of it, and it probably isn't. Because, Mosquito Story's coming out in September in Fantasy Magazine #4, alongside the lovely Amber van Dyk's!
