First of the year [Jan. 4th, 2017|09:12 pm]

I have a story out in the Jan/Feb issue of Analog, my first short story of the year. It’s called “Drifting Like Leaves, Falling Like Acorns,” and it’s got companion frogs and genetically engineered flying squirrel people and much weirder stuff than I’ve had in Analog before.

Also it goes with “Uncle Flower’s Homecoming Waltz” and “The Ministry of Changes” and “Surfacing” and “The Dust Gate” and “The Salt Path,” all of those. The folder with those stories in it is called “postnuclear fantasy,” but that’s not really specific enough that other people will know which ones I mean. Anyone who has read them and has suggestions for a series title, setting title, group title, whatever, please comment or email me. I’d appreciate any help I could get on that front.

I don't have a title for you, but in my mind, the series is something like "the distant war comes home." Because you mostly don't see the war, but you see its effect on the the people who stayed home and the ones who come home (or don't) from the war.

These are some of my favorites of your stories! I am glad there is another one. I keep thinking, "Uncle Flower comes to Analog," though that's probably not a good description.

Yay! I really enjoy reading about that world.
