The Publication of Mark Twain’s Daughter

Written in 2009, revamped heavily in in 2010, over one year at, 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.

  1. Seeing a story I helped work reach publication is one of those pleasures I wasn’t expecting when I started out with this writing stuff. Congratulations; I think it’s a very substantial work, and well deserves publication.
