Green Genius

After multiple revisions, I am sending off a short story called Parasomnia to the National Medical Fiction Writing Contest, sponsored by SEAK, which is also sponsoring the medical fiction seminar I'll be attending in November. The medical aspect of the story is that one of the characters is diagnosed with sleep paralysis.

In the process of looking for a magazine which might publish such a story, I bought copies of Asimov's Science Fiction, and Fantasy and Science Fiction yesterday. I've never read these "pulp" magazines before, but there's some good stuff in there. Robert Loy is pretty clever. He has a story in F&SF using classic movie monsters (Frankenstein, Bride of Frankenstein, Creature from the Black Lagoon, Dracula, etc.), with liberal use of puns. Doh! Why didn't I think of that? He has a web site,Green Genius, which I'm endorsing without having read much of it, just based on the story in F&SF. For my buddy Eben: note that Loy is a policeman in South Carolina.

That's hilarious! Those whacky cops, anyway!

Loved the story, man - It's a winner with Monica and I!
