Drumroll, please...

In a message stamped 9:36 last night, Prose Toad editor R.A. Rubin accepted "This Never Happened to Superman" to appear in the January 2006 issue.

This marks my first mainstream story sale, fruition for an idea born eight years ago. Thank you to everyone who taught and encouraged me, editors who rejected the story but nudged me closer to success, and finally that core of believers. Because of you, I kept at it.

Yes! About time someone picked this up. Congrats.

Now, turn it into a novel.

Thanks, Dave.

I do like the characters well enough to try.

Cool news, Gerald. I like the title and I think it's fun to mix mainstream stuff with genre stuff. Keeps the muscles in shape. A novel sounds like fun...what's the story about?

...what's the story about?

It's about what happens when a car breaks down.
