Jan. 10th, 2010

As I mentioned a little earlier, Finches (the titular story of the series) was accepted into The Tangled Bank anthology, which celebrates the 150th anniversary of Charles Darwin's Origin of Species via collected short stories, non-fiction, art and poetry. Publication of this anthology has been moved up to February 12, 2010, or Valentine's Day. It will be available in multiple electronic formats, including for the iPhone, and traditional print.

It's taken me four years to find a home for Finches I, and I must say, there can't be anything more appropriate than to see it included in an anthology celebrating evolutionary theory like this. For a very long time, I had thought the story simply unpublishable. It is a very nice way to start the year.

The full table of contents for this anthology is available at the publisher's website, here. I don't entirely know how the anthology is set up myself. I don't think the text will be arranged according to its format, as the TOC suggests -- that would put my story at the very start of the book, a delightful but otherwise nerve-wracking thought. If that is how it turns out though, it will be a first.

Don't hit me!
I'm pretty sure the non-fiction bit entitled Introduction will be first. Call it a hunch... ;)

It will arrive, sooner or later, I promise. And I will be just as happy I received it. :)

Cute emoticon too - I've never seen it before, though I knew what it was right away!
