Written in 2009, revamped heavily in in 2010, over one year at Tor.com, and eleven rejections later, Mark Twain's Daughter has found a home in Paper Golem's Cucurbital 3 collection. This is the second story Lawrence Schoen has been kind enough to buy from me in two years.
I'm just happy this one finally found a home. This publication is dedicated to Ferrett Steinmetz and Sean Craven, who were extraordinarily helpful when I pulled this one back into the garage. I couldn't have done it without you, gentlemen.
