First the Blogosphere, Now Fiction! The VoH Revolution Continues

I don't usually make The Vault of Horror about me--but dammit, this is a red letter date in B-Sol history. That's because yours truly has had his very first horror short story accepted for publication in an honest-to-goodness magazine!

The mag is Midnight Echo, and its published by the Australian Horror Writers Association (AHWA). My story, "Hell Hath No Fury", will be included in Issue #3, which I believe will be out in the fall.


To say I'm excited would be the understatement of the century. This is the culmination of years of aspiration to be a published fiction writer, and many months of work on this story alone. The word "vindication" scarcely does it justice.

I want to heap loads of thanks on to Ms. Harker of Musings Across a Continuum for pointing me in the direction of Midnight Echo in the first place, and of course, to the one and only BJ-C of Day of the Woman, my amazing protege, for taking the time out to look the story over and provide some very valuable feedback.

Check out the Midnight Echo website here. I'll be letting everyone know about issue availability once I know more.

Made it, Ma! Top of the world!

Excellent news. Very good, B-Sol. Glad to know another home town boy makes good. And being recognized for intellectual pursuits is extremely gratifying.

And as an aspiring failed writer, I can understand what you mean by vindication.
