Ahem. Actually, the January/February double issue of Analog appears to have been out for a while, and is already replaced by the March issue in some of the places I called. But "Exposure Therapy" by R. Emrys Gordon is in it, and has a gorgeous illustration by Bill Warren, with an actual snake-looking snake!

It's out it's out it's out it's out it's out!

The exclamation points work their magic, whatever the content of the sentence.

I'll rush out and look for it as soon as the shops are open!

Congratulations on being published in a Big Three magazine. You have officially Made It! Well done.

("R. Emrys Gordon" reminds me of Heinlein's "G. Brooks McNye", where the G. stood for Gloria, every time I see it.)

Thank you! Now if only there was some truth to the "breaking in" myth and it had become any easier to get other stories accepted...

Was that the girl from Menace From Earth?

I was thinking of R. Daneel Olivaw, myself. :->

Asimov's I, Robot stories-and-novels. The Three Laws series. Specifically, in Caves of Steel, robots were sufficiently ubiquitous that they were being used as office boys and whatnot, but their names were prefaced with an R. He gets assigned a new 'partner' from one of the extrasolar colonies, and said partner turns out to be *R.* Daneel Olivaw instead of just Daneel Olivaw as he was initially told (and Lije Bailey was a massive anti-robot bigot). Hence is the substrate of a Buddy Pic laid.

Whee, printed!!!

(BTW, is the party still on, and if so has anyone northish with ride-space turned up yet...?)

The party is still on, albeit small (3 or 4 guests plus the two of us). Sarah will pick you up--say around 7? And drive you back the next day. I am de-cluttering the guest bedrooms right now. We are having fondue--please remind me of any food preferences/allergies (I remember about the fragrances. Is putting mulling spices--actual cinnamon and clove, nothing fake--on the stove before people come over okay?)

Sounds like a plan (address coming in email) -- yeah, mulling spices ought to be safe, I think it's more the binders in fragrances that are my actual problem. As to food allergies, fondue should be safe as long as it doesn't involve bananas (which I'm sensitive enough to that even the smell of the peels will make me gag these days -- endlessly entertaining when Mum's been eating them in the car, boyhowdy :) ).

I've got to go find the mag now! I didn't even know you were writing. Emrys, BTW, is a LOVELY middle name. I wish you great luck with your further career!

That's because I was suffering from extended writer's block for most of college.

Actually, Emrys is a lovely last name, which we chose when we got married, so thank you for the praise. (For complex reasons having to do with my employer's bureaucracy, I have two last names. I only use them together when I'm writing.)

Thunderbirds are go, and we'll be there if that's all right.

Cool. Remind me of food preferences/allergies. I do remember the no-nuts thing--is it okay if they are at the table (i.e. a sate dip), or should they be kept away entirely? (Speaking of which, one of our guests is fragrance-sensitive, so please no BPAL.)

Bring songbooks if you'd like; we have other filkers.

See you Sunday!

No nuts, no fish, but it only bothers him if actually consumed by him.

Thanks, and hi! I see by your profile that you're out in Washington now?
