"The Love Letter" at Daily Science Fiction

This morning my flash story, "The Love Letter" went out to Daily Science Fiction's mailing list.

The first time I wrote this, I had the wrong ending. I got clever, and thought I would Say Something about Writing. Then I sent it to the wrong market, where they pointed out the ending problem and rejected it (so maybe it was the right market, in its own way). The story is a little quieter now, and I think really, like it always wanted to be, it's just about a couple of guys.


  1. I just finished reading your piece and I came here immediately to tell you how fantastic I thought it was.

    As an aspiring writer myself, I thought it was a truly moving piece, fantastic dialogue and well fleshed out characters done in a very Heinlein-esque manner (which is one hell of a compliment I assure you).

    Anyway you did a great job, and hopefully I'll see more of your work (and maybe some of mine) popping in my inbox again someday.

    Good luck

  2. Joe,

    Thank you for the thoughtful comment. I assure you the compliment does not go unappreciated. :-)

    Best of luck in your own work,
