I really like the story and I am pretty impressed with Carnifexpress's anthologies, so combined with my feeling that it is a great fit and the fact that I haven't received the e-mail of death yet has got me uncharacteristically wound up.
Those who know me will testify to my detachment during the submission process--- once the story goes out into the world, it pretty much is product with little emotional attachment involved. I do most of my artistic suffering during the creation phase.
I'll feel pretty silly if I go to my email after posting this to find the story rejected, but somehow I am not feeling that this is the case :)

I really liked this one. It was hard though, because I told it from the POV of an observer who gets caught up in the dreadfulness of the Servant's life. There is even a bit of a love story.
Of course she ends up killing nearly everyone one in sight and feeding them to the beast, same as always, but hey, find your romance where you can, I always say :)

It will be pretty cool sharing a TOC with Scott Sandridge, who posts at the sf reader board. Honore de Balzac is no slouch, either :)

Writing was such a releif from hucking canned goods that I managed to finish "Weaving Spiders Come Not Here" the third story in the Servant of the Manthycore series. A quick run against the crit group, and it will be ready to submit.

When I get the programming, I'll post it here, and maybe I'll even be able to post from the con, though that is always iffy. Since it is only 25 minutes away, we won't be getting a room, which actually menas that I will get enough sleep, or at least what can charitably be regarded as a facsimile of such :)
