Hard SF signal boost  
Linda Nagata, who has the indie published novel on the Nebula final ballot this year, has just come out with a hard SF story at Lightspeed. Looks like hard sf with good female representation, hoo!

BTW, tangentially, I just sold a novella reprint to Lightspeed.

Congratulations!! Which one? And how cool that an indie made it to the final ballot! Way to go Linda Nagata. With luck and good time management, I'll check out her short story later today.

"Rule of Engagement."

Yeah, I too have it bookmarked for later, if I get my work done. Read the first page, and really like it.

Woohoo! Novellas are hard to sell, so DOUBLE congratulations.

(That is my hat being off to you.)

I didn't even send it out--it was asked for! I do short stuff so seldom I don't think I've actually sent any out since the turn of the century; what little I write has been for specific anthologies. It never occurred to me to turn any of that stuff around.
