Exciting News…

Okay, so I’ve been a bad blogger.

Bad blogger. Bad, bad blogger!

But let me share some good news I just recieved.






My story, “Harry’s Mermaid”, which appeared in issue #84 of ON SPEC magazine – has been honorably mentioned in Ellen Datlow’s Year’s Best Horror and Fantasy for 2011. This isn’t the first time I’ve had stories mentioned in the list – but it doesn’t happen nearly often enough for me to even PRETEND to be perpetually jaded. I am darned proud and pleased to see a tale of mine mentioned in that list.

For folks who don’t know, ON SPEC is a Canadian science-fiction fantasy anthology magazine that has been out on the market since 1989!

Check it out!




And finally, let me leave you with a little writing advice.


Read, write and rinse.

Read, write and rinse.

Repeat, as often as necessary.

yours in storytelling,

Steve Vernon
