I was solicited for a short personal essay by a mostly political magazine that pays for essays they solicit. Solicits don't always work out, so I'll be more specific if this one does. Mostly I'm very pleased that the editor admires "Little Colored Pills" and found me. (Was it through "Sunday Short Reads," I wonder?) "In any case, this is an occasion to say how much I admire and enjoy your work. 'Little Colored Pills' is remarkable, and it’s an all-time favorite in the genre."
In the meantime our latest CNF pub at CRAFT, Ross Showalter's "Deaf Rage" is off the charts in twitter response (over 300 likes on Ross's post and climbing), which is exciting. I've been CNF editor there for just over two years and I'm proud of the body of CNF we've assembled.
