Next anthology cover … and a surprise

Space Cowboys will launch on 24 FEB 2023 — however …

I’m driving into work when my phone bings. It is a message from Herder of Cats, Assistant Instigator-in-Training, 3rd Mom of the Apocalypse. It says, merely:

“So, Space Cowboys … have you seen the folder yet?”

Oh, bugger. Of course we only got four or five stories. Damn it, damn it, damn it. I call, “Kortnee, I’ve got two or three people who are promising me stories within the next few days. That should be enough.”

“Oh, that’s not the problem. That’s not the problem at all.”

I’m a little perplexed, “Ok?”

She giggles. This is a Bad Sign. “Have you looked in the folder?”

“Not in a week or two. Oh, [deleted], did it delete???”

“Oh, no. There are 17 stories in there.”


“… what?”

“Yeah, we’ve got seventeen stories, plus there will be the normal stragglers.”

“… Oh.”

“So, how do you feel about Space Cowboys, part 2?”


All right, then. Space Cowboys will still launch on 24 Feb 23. Space Cowboys 2 (Electric Boogaloo Rodeo) will launch two weeks later on 10 Mar 23.

New deadline will be 01 FEB 2023, so if you’ve got a short story about cowboys and space, send it in.

Now I’ve got to get another cover.



Batten down the hatches
Testing, testing.
