Back from the Mountains of Madness

or something like that. This weekend was the test I was preparing for. I now have a little time to breathe, so I got the re-write to "Darkling I Listen; and for Many a Time" done and out. I still need to re-write "Night of Shadows, Night of Knives" for a quite patient magazine editor, and perhaps take another turn at "Do We Truly Know Why the Junkie Pixies Sing". There is a Joe Denfar story to complete, and of course the fifth Servant of the Manthycore story needs to get written in the next few weeks.
Oh, and I promised to contribute to the "Tales from the Dragon's Den" anthology.
Somewhere in there I need to get some work done on the novel.
Wish me luck!

"Servant" reviewed in Tangent

This review at Tangent Online from Paul Abbamondi:

"Servant of the Manthycore: A Tale of the Ancient Near-East" by Michael Ehart follows a female protagonist, the servant of the Manthycore, as she discovers a scene of murder and destruction by a desert oasis. Waiting there for her is Ananth, a goddess of death, ready to offer her a chance for freedom from the beast of sorcery she serves.
Reminiscent of the classic sword and sorcery tales by Robert E. Howard and Michael Moorcock, Ehart's yarn of servitude and choice is finely crafted. A vivid setting, a strong, intelligent heroine, a moody atmosphere, and a battle with the undead, make this the best entry of the issue. The ending is wickedly fun."

Pardon me while I widen the doorways so I can get my head through.

"The View from the Shotglass Floor"

Stumbled across this good news: "The View from the Shotglass Floor" will be in T. N. Thomas' TIMEFLASH Anthology, a collection of short time-travel stories. I haven't gotten the acceptance letter yet, but the story is on the website list of TOC. Looks like the publication date is the 1st of August.
